Details: The forecast for the weekend was horrible with big swell and strong winds. So we headed inland and gave Lake Purrumbete a try. After finding a suitable entry point (which is nearly the only entry point), we geared up and walked through crystal clear shallows(inhabited by eels) to the edge of the dropoff. At this point reeds extended down to about 6-7m, forming a towering wall of reeds to explore along. The vis was great for a fresh water lake, but there was still large particles in the water, perhaps some type of algae, that made photography difficult. I thought i was hallucinating at one stage when a school of about 10 red fin swum past..i knew i was in a fresh water lake, but it felt like the ocean. A really interesting dive.

Camera Details: Canon 60mm , SS200 Strobes
