Yesterday I rode with Mass Diving on the big boat with Cape Ann Divers. Water was a flat as could be and I had the pleasure of diving at 2 incredible spots.
At SNL I swam through the trench solo. I mostly shot video, but I did take a few photos. I shot with the 550D and a GoPro mounted on top, pointed at me. I will cut together a first-person SNL video soon and share here. Vis was fantastic at SNL. a good 30 feet or more. I was also pleased that no one kicked up the mud on the bottom. In my usual wimpy fashion, I stayed on top of the trench at around 100'. Of course I saw Robert Landy swim by 30 feet below me (and moving twice as fast). I ambled down to the end of the trench, was briefly tempted to photograph the burrowing anemones, but knew it would take me another 8 minutes to get to them and get a good shot. I decided to head back and leave the dangerous work to Landy.
BFW was considerably murkier and the current blew me off the down line which I promptly lost. I just focused on Alisa's bubbles instead and eventually found the wall. I hooked a left and went south for a couple hundred feet along the bottom of the wall. I was thrilled to see a cod swim by, a very rare treat!
A shot of the cod above and a couple more photos below, enjoy!
Above is a clip of the murky depths of BFW. That's all for now, see everyone soon!
