Details: Got up nice and early (8am – thats pretty good for me ;) ) and searched for a fin a lost last night. I dont know how i lost it…i was talking cuttle shots (obviously) in near to no light and found myself without a fin. I searched for it on the night, but it was just too dark. I didn’t hold much hope in finding was probably 10km away by now so gave up pretty quickly and (after seeing if any of the other visiting divers had any spares) had to just give it a go with one. It worked ok just crossing my legs, and i wasn’t covering much ground so it really didn’t matter, but it was very annoying and did affect my control underwater. After i finsihed this dive, a very nice local from Whyalla gave me his wives old fins..great bloke! Thanks a million if you ever stumble onto this blog!

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

Dive Report: Some shots from a short, finless dive:

There’s nice cuttlefish in this shot.

Getting a bit frisky.

There must have been a bit of a predator in the area, or some domestic dispute going on, as the water was full of ink at one stage.
