These beautiful images were taken over the weekend by Instructor Jason
Instructor Jason was able to get into the water over the weekend for a couple of fun dives at Little Beach and Pipeline! Although the visibility was only about 7metres, and the water only about 17 degrees (cold!) he was able to enjoy a couple of really great dives focusing on his macro critter spotting and photography
“For me, some of the best dives are where you get that neutral buoyancy right, go super slow, look for the small critters in the cracks and crevices or hiding in the weed and then have a challenge to get a photo of it or show your buddy before it disappears. I was lucky to enjoy two of these dives last weekend, one with guests on Saturday at Little Beach, and a second dive on Sunday evening at Pipeline where I got to take my camera :-)
Hope to get in for a few more dives with my camera again soon.”
