Lemon sharks, Tiger sharks and Caribbean reef sharks on the Little Bahama Bank.

I enjoyed viewing your pics.  What lens did you use with your D800?  Sigma 15 mm?

How much would one of these charters cost? I have always wanted to do this.

Mostly. The reef sharks were shot with a Nikon 16-35mm.

Lots: I think that the charter is around $2500 for each diver. We paid for flights from the UK, and the boat was deliberately not filled, so I can't give you an exact price for 2013.

Isn't photography strange? I almost left that image out of the final selection...

What size dome?  Is a 9 or 10 inch needed or will an 8 inch do ok with the 16-35 mm lens?

Elmer the sigma 15 works fine in a 6" dome, you will need the 9" or larger dome for the 16-35

I agree: the bigger the better (not to mention the 70mm extension) to accommodate the 16-35mm Nikon lens.

Lovely Tim....

My favourite is the black and white lemon 'sulking', might have some use current commercially in my opinion.

 

A few too many though in my opinion Tim, I know its hard, by god its hard!
