great photos! Just curious what boat you went out with and if this was a baited dive? I live in Ft. Lauderdale, I usually go out with Jupiter Dive Center but would definitely like some more info on the dive you did. Thanks!
that's great news that they haven't banned flash photography but it sounds like the manatee police will have more things to yell at us about now
just curious where house spring was, tried looking it up on google but couldn't find anything in crystal river. I'll be going up in a few weeks and would like to check it out if three sisters is closed
go with the two SS 110a's. I use them with a Nikon D7000/Ike setup in full manual and don't miss TTL at all. Once you shoot manual I found that you get more consistent photos than relying on the camera to do flash exposure.
I think that closing off the sides of the springs will do exactly what you said, create a more concentrated area of tourists. I was at 3 Sisters yesterday and there were two large tour groups of snorkelers surrounding and crowding the manatees. Plus a tour group of kayakers (6 or 7 of them) were also surrounding the manatees in the center of the spring. had to wait until the tour groups got rounded up before I could take photos again. Does anyone know how roped off the outer parts of the spring will be? Those offer some of the best manatee photos.
