This was a late minute replacement for my cancelled Bonaire trip :-( I went on the trip through Blue Dolphin Scuba and we ended up being on the MV Spree. This was my first time taking down my new camera and the new housing for it. All the pictures are taken with that camera using only the builtin flash. Sometimes the flash was not turned on (photographer's mistake) and the pictures turned out blue - like expected... The visibility was around 60ft and most of the UW pictures were taken at around 70 ft.

Hawksbill Turtle. This one would have nipped my butt if my divebuddy Michael hadn't pulled my fin. I was a little startled when I turned around and had the turtle two feet from my face. It's a very friendly turtle...
