just when i thought I was beginning to learn how to take a "decent" image - now comes Underwater Photography!
For this I gotta swim underwater, be still and take a picture!!!!

Anyway, I went Snorkeling for the very 1st time ever and I was amazed!!!!
i bought an underwater camera - Olympus 770SW.
Today we went looking for Green Sea Turtles...............

Great underwater shots. How did you like the camera? My wife & I are going to HI in the fall and I'm contemplating an underwater housing for her SD700IS or perhaps spending a bit more for the Olympus.

I have a housing for my A80 and it works great. Tell me, did you use your flash with these shots? I was in Mexico a few weeks back and had trouble with the flash bouncing back off the plankton. Very nice shots by the way.
