A dozen of oyster reefs come to surface at low tide

The INTOVA IC14

Camera 14MP-9PC
Tested the Intova IC 14 underwater camera last weekend in the Bahamas.  So far great results on acutance, detail, hue, gamma control, filtration, telephoto zoom, macro, panoramic, video and intelligent scene mode .
Light weight underwater case and flexible flash unit … looking forward to the underwater Abaco expedition and GreyCliff photo shoot, in two weeks.

See below a depiction of an area of a coral reef by using the tele-zoom (photo 2).

The Sea

The SeaWith each encounter over a span of forty years, this novelty consistently elicits new perspectives and inspirations…
“The sea is everything. It covers seven tenths of the terrestrial globe. Its breath is pure and healthy. It is an immense desert, where man is never lonely, for he feels life stirring on all sides. The sea is only the embodiment of a supernatural and wonderful existence. It is nothing but love and emotion; it is the Living Infinite. ”
― Jules Verne, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea

A drop of h2o

Finally I found a moment to photograph and freeze a drop of water with my SLR.  It works at a PR of 1/32 or 1/64 with the Sunpak 5000 thrystor (GN=110).  I had to push the ISO to 800 to achieve the correct exposure times.  The tricky part of the experiment is to figure out the velocity of the water drop, and to synchronize the camera shutter to the target
(this step and focus must be set in advance).
P.S. entire experiment in the chapter “Hi Speed Photography” .

Back at the farm …

Veterans FarmBack at the farm after a long summer … get out of the a.c., and take a deep breath of fresh air, smell of earth – you realize how peaceful and tranquil all is: Autumn leaves, insects flying, seeds germinating, sun rays on your face … I am staying!.

The Veterans Farm is expanding 6.5 acres, new plantation of mushrooms, new line of hot peppers, white grapes coming along, the blueberries’ buds are breaking out, Tilapia production, and other aquatic species, all happening this Fall.

You slowly move around giant reefs, populated by an extraordinary and rich ecosystem, suspended on a constant moving mass of blue waters – intimidating, but exciting.
