Details: Finally caught up with Chris Jansen for a dive. It was looking like a good weekend for diving, but around the heads and coast didn’t promise good vis, so we stuck to St Leonards. Luckily it paid off with pretty decent vis nearing a low tide.

Camera Details: Tokina 10-17mm , single SS200 strobe

Dive Report: I had the fisheye on and there wasn’t a lot of fisheye subjects, so Chris was the model for most this dive. Love the smile Chris! ; )
