Nauticam NA-D800 in the Sea of Cortez

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I’m running a trip through Divequest next September to La Paz, Sea of Cortez. We decided to go and check it out beforehand and had some nice encounters with the sealions and whalesharks there.

 

After reading Alex M’s most recent article on models and the saleability of images with people in them, I went for some of that.

 

D800, Sigma 15mm, Zen 200mm dome

Then tried to get a bit of animal with animal interaction

Awesome, the two sea lions kissing and the sun burst with the sea lion are my favorites.

I really like the charging bull and the upside down portrait that you posted on Facebook. Both are very strong.

 

The others aren't exactly far behind.

 

Did you get any of the pups playing with starfish and other toys?
