Good idea for a thread! Maybe even more difficult to select. My selection (the shot without the backpack) was taken with my housed camera as a test shot before immersion at one of my favorite local UW sites. There are hundreds of fish in the water here during the late summer. The location only gets direct sunlight for about an hour in the morning, later the trees on the south side (a steep hill) block the light. I have to get past the fallen tree to get to my deployment position (see shot with pack). The water level is often right to the top of my waders getting past the fallen tree top. Ducking is possible too but requires crawling. This year the water was high so there was water along the full length which made even that challenging.
