Thanks to those that have voted on my image.  I was thrilled to grab this shot and have many more to process after our recent trip.  My Nikon D800e, Nikkor 24-70 and Singh-Ray warming LB polarizer really did the trick and this is my go to combo when shooting for travel.

I will have more images to post up soon.

Thanks for reading

Underwater in the U.S Virgin Islands

Happy Fourth of July.

We are enjoying another year in St. Thomas and the U.S. Virgin Islands.  I am pleased to report that my new AW 100 is working perfectly and providing a lot of fantastic images as well as underwater video.  I am learning that I do not know much about shooting video but I am having fun trying.

So far the photography opportunities have been abundant.  We spent the holiday today on a great day
sail with two snorkeling stops where I got some great images.  This Filefish was a new one for me and I was glad he finally let me take his picture.

The Nikon AW100 is a great tool with some nice options. It has been performing well although if you want to grab video, pictures and use all the options like GPS and video light, then you need extra batteries.  I use three and they come in handy.

I will post some new info as I process some new images.

Until next time, keep shooting. button Promote Your Blog Follow on Buzz Blog ping service Dreamhost Promotional Codes
