Jean and I just returned from a week long trip to Anthony’s Key Resort on Roatan, and I have finished editing my best photos from the week. Jean is still working on hers, and will be published soon. Since we were traveling alone (not as part of a group) we were pleased to be joined by some excellent divers and made some new friends. With the superb service at the resort, the great diving, and fine weather, we would definitely recommend Anthony’s Key Resort to any diver. You can see the photos here
Jean and I spent a few days in Durham, North Carolina attending a Diving Fatalities Workshop sponsored by the Divers Alert Network. After the last day’s meetings, we decided to visit the Sarah P. Duke Gardens located on the grounds of Duke University. Beautiful day, gorgeous gardens. The photos don’t do this place justice…here is the link to their website
Some random shots both underwater and topside from our recent trip to Curacao. Beautiful weather, blue water, great diving, and great friends!
Here is something that might be of interest to some. you can have slideshows of your photos shown on digital cable TV…The system in called Photoshow TV and it is a new, easy way to share your digital pictures and videos with friends and family, right through your computer and TV. PhotoShowTV is FREE for Time Warner Cable customers with both Road Runner High Speed Online and Digital Cable services. My first show is currently being shown on digital channel 1110 under the Outdoors category. Here is the link to create your own show.
We spent the day today driving up to Westfield about 90 minutes north of Madison to visit Prairie Nursery. We are going to transform a part of our back yard into a native plant prairie. The nursery is well known for their native Wisconsin prairie plants. They feature show gardens with well marked plants and expert advice on what conditions each plant requires. Since each prairie plant blooms at a different time of year, only the late summer/early fall plants were in bloom when were there. Even so, lots of photo opportunities.
Well, we spent last weekend at Lake Wazee near Black River Falls, and conducted a few PADI Specialty courses in addition to an Advanced Open Water class. One of the Advanced class dives was Underwater Digital Photography…not the greatest conditions nor a high end camera setup, but I think everyone had fun taking photos anyway.
I got up early today to take advantage of the cloudy conditions and shoot some wildflowers at one of the local parks…..I thought the use of flash combined with the cloudy skies makes for some dramatic shots.
