Wind:   15knot  SE’s.

Tide: 1hrs after 1.33 high tide at the heads.

Conditions:    Weather had swung aorund to the south, which suited heaidng over to the bay side of the peninsula. However a bit of a storm was brewing. A bit of side current that i’ve come to expect at Blair and vis was ok..nothing special.

Visibilty: 8m

Water Temp: 20c

Bottom Time: 134 minutes

Max Depth: 6.3m

Air usage: 200bar/3000psi

SAC: ???? litres/min

Details:      I was hoping blairgowrie would be crawling with nudi’s but i was a bit dissappointed. I saw a fair few species, but nothing special apart from a fairly generic orange slug, that i’m not sure if i’ve seen before or not. Lots of vercos, tambja sp’s, mating hedgpethis and flabellinas. Also a nicely positioned seahorse that didn’t fit into my macro lens.  A ring-backed pipehorse with a strange red sack near its mouth, pygmy squid, a blue-ringed octopus and the occassional stinkfish.  

Camera Details: Canon  100mm , dual SS200 strobes
