Hmm.. I think I would have to have my gallery on Flickr to embed a photo here. Not sure if my me.com site at apple allows that? Ok.. I see that is a pinned topic... Sorry guys...

Some stonking shots in there. Seems a trip well worth travelling for.

The trip to Isla Mujeres is certainly worth it...you cant miss on this one....there are 100's of whale sharks everyday to photograph. Viz is not the greatest based on the photos I see from La Paz but overall a very cool trip. Some days we felt like we were in the middle of a railroad yard dodging freight trains...there were that many...

Nice, what kind of visiblity did you have? Seems like you got good color saturation.

hey Dave. Viz varied day to day the clarity of water was poor but I guess
that is why the sharks are there...feeding on all the plankton
in water.
