Under the Sea

"Darling it's better down where it's wetter take it from me."
- Sebastian the Crab in The Little Mermaid

I got an underwater housing unit for my new Canon G12 Camera.  Despite the fact that it is (obviously) very "heavy duty" and proven to keep the water out - I was super nervous when I splashed this baby for the first time.  Bringing your brand new, very nice camera into salt water of all things feels about as wrong as flinging yourself off a cliff with nothing but a band of elastic between you and the bottom...but I did it - and I am proud to say she survived with nary a droplet of water on her.

Visibility, unfortunately, was not so good due to river runoff from South America (yeah, crazy right?) but we had a great time and saw some beautiful sea life nonetheless!  It never ceases to amaze me that there is this exotic, beautiful, strange and incredible world that exists right under the surface and all you need is a mask and some fins to experience it...what a gift.

Beautiful! Isn't it amazing how you can just stick your head a few inches under the water and find a whole new and amazing world?!

I was wondering what kind of camera you were using! Nice!
