Excellent. I like the turtle and grey angels shot.

Very nice. I'm in Coz now & start my diving tomorrow. Hopefully I'll get some as clear as these.

I'm glad you guys like them! I like the moodiness of number one but number three is the most interesting content wise. The angels were cleaning the turtle. You can see an arc above them where I think I have a light leak from the camera flash past the zoom ring and then hitting the dome. I have not taken the time to clean that up. Number two I like because I have fought many times to nail the eyes of the arrow crabs and finally did. They are so lanky it is hard to fit them all into the DOF without going to a super tiny aperture and I kind of like it that way anyway.

Great shots! I've been there 3 times and is my favorite place to dive (even better than Fiji, imho).

Did you get a shot of a toadfish?

I saw some toadfish this trip but didn't get any keepers. On the boat dives I always am set up for WA so smaller critters like that don't work too well.

Good job, nice pics. How many dives did you do while you were there? Heading there myself the end of this month for a couple weeks of diving.

We got in 16 dives over 6 days. The port was closed the first day we were there but we could shore dive which got us three dives. We were at Scuba Club which has a nice macro shore dive. We got 10 dives off of the boat which I always shoot WA as the current keeps you moving pretty quickly.

Have a great time and safe diving!

I'm in Hotel Cozumel right now & have another day of diving tomorrow & the currents are the mildest I've ever seen this trip. Yesterday you'd think there wasn't even a current at times. Port was closed Friday though. Saw a few reef sharks, some Nurse sharks 3 Eagle Rays & several turtles today.

We only had one Eagle Ray sighting but it was a really cool one. It was hanging out over the blue at Palancar Gardens, just sitting still in the current.

We had two nurse sharks, though I only saw the first as I was doing my safety stop when the second one appeared to the lighter breathers in our group. It was funny how fast I went through air that day compared to normal. I now know I was sick then and wonder if that had something to do with it.

Currents were moderate at most for our trip on the reefs and negligible on the SCC, HC shore dive. Since the wind was on shore it was pretty surgey up close to the iron shore though.
