This summer, we went snorkelling on our Hawaii trip. The boat took us to Kealakekua Bay, just in view of Captain Cook Memorial at the site where the explorer was killed. I took my underwater camera and was busy taking photos of the colorful fish when I caught a glimpse of someone blowing bubbles underwater. I quickly got a snapshot. When he got to the surface, I realized he was one of the crewmen of our boat. He was definitely having fun underwater!
Let me tell you one thing about underwater photography from the surface: it's not easy to aim! You think you have aimed your camera properly and a wave comes and carries you and your subject is suddenly out of sight. On land, we take being firmly grounded for granted, but not so in water!
Ahh yes it is a great experience seeing the underwater world. I have done a bit of snorkeling but without a camera. I was not too brave I must admit, always fearing that something would bite me - haha.
I am not surprised that it is quite difficult to return with good images. It is a completely other category that needs practice. I find you have reached a very nice result, it looks good. Love the boy floating with the big air bubble leaving his mouth.
An interesting and surely not everyday's photo - and a good contribution to our theme of September. The bubble ring here really is fascinating. I also like the note here!
Greetings from summerly Germany!
So fun, I have never done any underwater photo yet, when I went to Hawaii so many year ago, we bought a disposable underwater camera, but nothing came out from that. I don't remember why. This look really and sound like fun. Hope to see your other underwater images.
