In Topic: Wetpixel South Komodo Expedition

How come unpacking is so much easier than packing but so much sadder?  This was a great trip. The boat, not at the luxury end of the market, was comfortable and well equipped. What makes the difference though - the crew were about the best I've encountered (and I'm such an expert), absolutely wonderful. The guides were terrific and Mark had a real knack for finding dead things. Strangely we had a series of strobe floods - I think five in total.  Fortunately nothing catastrophic.

 

For me it was particularly terrific to share the trip with my daughter, Phoebe.  We spent a couple of days in Bali first playing with our Underwater Tribe friends - this time rafting and bike riding.  Highly recommend it so long as you put in a bit of training ahead of the hills first.

 

As always travelling with Eric and this time Adam as well, meant there was plenty of opportunity to watch, ask, listen and learn. I'm still cropping for gold and it's time to update my camera so travelling with these generous folk was very timely. I've been able to pick their brains and cut through a whole lot of the complexity that comes with an upgrade decision. And really, hanging out with my first best californians again was bliss.  

 

Safe back in Oz, really missing Wetpixel friends but plotting away to be ready for the next one.

 

Here are a couple of images, G12- Inon Z240x1.

In Topic: Diving in Bali with Underwater Tribe - May 2013

04 July 2013 - 11:34 AM

Thanks for the feedback all.  Tim and Sasdasdaf - Liberty Wreck before breakfast is probably the way to go - me, I'm partial to drinking coffee in the early morning tropical sun before getting in the water :) Two of my group did a late afternoon dive and seemed to have the wreck to themselves. Two of us opted for the Coral Garden shore dive - it was a tough choice which in itself is a good sign. 

 

Paul,  Lucky you, you should be able to get some really good diving in in 5 days, look forward to hearing about it when you get back.

 

Thanks Steve, the website is a bit behind now - I have 3 trip reports in draft. 


In Topic: Boat Water Entry with Camera Gear Methods

I was so focussed on protecting my camera on a back roll negative entry at Castle Rock, Komodo recently, my mask came off.  Luckily someone below caught it but so much for a negative entry. Next time I'll try the 'face first side slip'.
