St Thomas: Below

Volume 8, Issue 77; 19 May 2005; last modified 08 Oct 2010

A small selection of underwater photographs from our recent vacation in St. Thomas, USVI.

Deb got me a new camera and its waterproof case as an anniversary present this year (thanks, sweetie!).

Thus armed, I spent a great many hours underwater. It worked like a dream. What also worked like a dream was the “auto” correction in the gimp’s “Levels” tool. I haven't done anything else to punch up the color in these images. That's what it really looks like down there.

Late on the first afternoon, I decide there's time for one more dip before dinner. I swim out towards the float. I never approach it without wondering what lurks in the shadow below. Peering through the steps as I reach for them, I am eye to eye with a large barracuda.

There are a great many more photos like this in St Thomas: Below, May 2005 at Flickr.

The panoramic banner, by the way, is a 360° view from a short distance from shore at Coki Point.


Wow Norm. They are impressive. The photography too. So what's the camera please? Any comparisons with the Nikon?
