Details: I’d just bought a 7mm neoprene drysuit, so this was mostly a dive to give it a try and get my weighting right. The lure of photographying the Pale Octopus again with a wider lens was also strong. After 10 minutes of screwing around, adding some more weight, and working out i needed some leg weights, i got busy with the photos.

Camera Details: Canon 17-40mm , single SS200 strobe

Dive Report: I caught up with the Pale Octopus again on this dive. Plus one of his night time buddies, a Cobbler. The rest of the time was just shooting some scapes.
