My girlfriend and I went to Bonaire last week for an incredible week of diving. We stayed at Buddy Dive. She had been there in the past, but this was my first time. This was my first time diving in the ocean since being certified for my OW course back in June of this year. Not only that, but it was also my first time ever leaving the US. I had a brilliant time. We went to Buddy Dive in Bonaire. What a beautiful country, from north to south. I highly recommend it for anyone who has not been!
These are just a few of the photosI took. If you want more, please ask. We dove: Buddy Reef, Windsock, Hilma Hooker, Boca Slagbaai, Sharon's Serenity, Keepsake, Carl's Hill, etc.
Photos were taken with my GoPro Hero2 HD, GoPro Dive Housing, $14 red filter (I am purchasing the Backscatter one), SeaLife mount, Intova Imini; Other photos with a SeaLife DC600 - handheld. Most of these are the underwater ones - above water to come later.

Wreck of the Hilma Hooker:
I have an AMAZING video of the bait ball here:
What I learned on this trip is that I have to get CLOSER to my subjects with the GoPro camera. Wish it had a zoom, but hey, it worked great I think.
And other videos too if anyone wants to see them.
