underwater photos

Post  MrNutt on Tue Apr 10 2012, 13:48

Bikes are one of my biggest loves, food and beer and food aside, but scuba diving is my other love.

I was lucky enough to get to go away on a family trip this last week (partly for my bday to), we were staying in nama bay in sharm el sheikh on the sinai peninsula Egypt.
spent 4 days diving while we were out there and twas great, water tempt was 23/24 degrees which was just right and the air temps ranged from 27 to nearly 40 degrees!!!!

I have recently got into underwater photography, well I say got into................. this trip was my first attempt at it, but I have had the gear knocking around for a while.

Thought I'd share some of my photos with you all see what you think, there not fantastic but I am still learnding... farao study

I am lacking the photoshopness, need to find me a copy from somewhere for my mac really.

That tool certainly does bring out some of the colours, nice one great

that is an odd looking thing, I have no idea what it is mind....

These Sealife Centres are amazing!

Seriously...superb shots. Diving as such doesn't appeal, I always fancied having a go in a mini sub or something though

its not for everyone, essentially it is drowning with style so could see why it doesnt appeal.....

thanks for the kind comments on the pics Thumb

I love snorkelling and doing so in the Indian Ocean was breath taking. Hoping to have a go at proper diving on our next jolly.

Superb pics Dave left thumb up
