Through the Lens | Week 6

Week 6 – Exploring the Pedro’s Castle Bay

February 5th – February 11th

Through the Lens – keep up with the latest encounters we are experiencing out on the boats. As a lot of you know I rarely dive without a camera, so keep up with this blog and check out whats through my lens week to week!

Week 6 comes from a single dive I took some customers on at Pedro’s Reef. Situated past Spotts Beach this little bay has 20 foot bluff walls descending into the water that have been on my mind for awhile. On the morning of the 8th we visited this area for the first time. I spoke about my want to go explore the outer edges of this dive site to my divers on the boat and everyone seemed very interested. For this dive I was shooting my Sony RX100IV in the Fantasea Line FRX100IV Housing System shooting some more 4K video content for an upcoming project.

On the morning of the 10th I brought out my DSLR to ensure I could also show this beautiful mini wall with photos as well.

With so many colors and such shallow water this mini wall could keep me busy for the whole dive.
