I took this photo while swimming between the David Tucker Wreck and the Royal James Wreck.  These wrecks are located on the southern side of the Island of New Providence in the Bahamas.

While making the swim between the two wrecks, I glanced up just as a school of fish was swimming across the path of the diver above me.

Luckily, I had just enough time to cut off my strobes and get a silhouette shot before the school and the moment was gone.

In post processing, I felt that the image worked better as a warm black and white.

First dive of the year!

by Shane Pinder on May 16, 2010

After a long break over the winter months, I am finally getting back into scuba diving.

Last Sunday,  I dove on the De La Salle wreck and at Lighthouse Reef. The De La Salle sits in about 60 feet of water and is broken up. There are schools of snapper on this wreck as well as grunts and the occasional grouper and crawfish. Unfortunately, there are also lionfish so you need to be on the lookout for them and control your buoyancy.

Here is a shot of a crawfish that I found hiding on the De La Salle as well as one of a Yellow Mouth Grouper.

Both of these shots were taken with a Canon G9 in an Ikelite housing with an Ikelite DS-51 strobe.
