Thanks Nancy. The filter I used was a 77mm Tiffen 0.6 "Colored Gradient Filter" - the color being grey. The filter rotates freely once it is screwed onto the lens. I used that and camera height and...
Looks like you've quickly become a macro image expert!

Looks like you've figured out the new camera!
Santa Cruz Island is a great spot for hunting nudi's. You got some fantastic shots. Have you become a fellow nudi hunter?
Water fell from the California skies. It was very odd. I'm not really sure what could have caused such an unusual thing to happen.
Because of this, I stayed out of the ocean for the first weekend...
That lobster guy looks oddly familiar; or is that familiarly odd?
I miss Johnoly! Say hello to him for me.

My first three-day span of time off since T-day meant that I had lots of lazy water time planned. I made my way down to the local easy dive spot somewhere past the crack of noon. While going through...
Guess I gotta go load the dive gear into my car.
Sympathy notes may be sent via this board.
Anyone else going diving this weekend?

Lover's Point, about a mile from my home.
We have been having temps in the mid-70's lately. MAYBE there will be a bit of MUCH NEEDED rain this week, but the temps will warm back up to the...
Another clear day in the 70sF today. Ocean models are predicting that a big swell will come in tomorrow, so I thought that I should make it into the water today. Moving at my top Saturday speed, I...
Been diving with my Quattros for over 14 years. I wouldn't dream of using something else!
Fantastic work with the new camera Nancy!
The weather and the viz this winter has been historic - I'm getting my share, but I'm still jealous that you guys get to go to Lobos mid-week.
Wow Angie! Those photos are definitely magazine/contest winning quality.
I guess seeing all the critters with big teeth surrounding you is the trade-off for clear, warm water. The big toothy...
Hi Gail - Thanks for the kind words.
i don't see any birds onshore. There's a peak of a harbor seal's head in the water as we come to shore. The shore is lined by large rocks and boulders with the...
Winter is when I catch up on photo and video editing, etc. The short, damp, cold, days and long nights are perfect for huddling in front of a glowing screen and...
...and it was 84F today. The...
I've been holding off on posting basically what Nancy did, but now is as good a time as any.
I know that there have been major staff changes at Bonnier that have significantly increased the...

There has been a starfish die-off here. I do not think that the cause has been determined, but I suspect a pathogen is involved. Back in the '70's a bacterial disease decimated the...

That mola was not resting. It was a victim of the a-hole sea lions, who think it is fun to bite the fins off molas and then play with them like frisbees. This mola was too big for...

Aside from the connection problems mentioned elsewhere, I have had other reasons for not being around here: three weeks of the chest cold that would not die, followed by two weekends of company,...

Hey Nancy - I just saw these. They are worth bumping up.
Those are really good for the first time with a new camera.
Making urchin barrens look so nice bumps them up to the great category....
Guess the IT department is back to the SOPs:
IT: Submit a ticket online and I'll enter your issue into the queue.
Lowly User: But I can't get online.
IT: Submit a ticket online and I'll...

HA! I found you.
Nothing like going to visit someplace you've frequented for years only to learn that everyone has moved without telling you.
Was this a hint?
I had primarily been...
Time, time, and time!
I work so that I can dive; I can't dive because I'm working.
I need less work time and more dive time.
Working on it.
Battling a nasty cold has slowed me down. Fever on hottest day of the year was not fun!
Those are great Nancy!
I stopped by the beach at Marina/Seaside (end of Canyon del Rey for those who know the area) and saw lots of whales. They look much larger to the naked eye standing on the...

I have an Oceanic folding snorkel, which I reluctantly put in the thigh pocket of my drysuit when I am faced with a long surface swim through VERY THICK kelp. It gets the jobs done and folds up small.
