Underwater Photography – St. Barts

Near the anchorage of Gustavia is a rock outcropping called Gros Ilets. It’s a great place to snorkel or do a shallow dive. Every time I’ve been here the water is clear with visibility of 100 meters or more.

Today was no different. I left around 8 AM and took the dinghy over. Karen decided to sleep in. I had my camera with underwater housing with me to do some photography. I wasn’t disappointed with the sights – lots of fish, some colorful coral (although tricky to find), and the photography turned out pretty good I think.

I use an older Canon A540 digital camera with an underwater housing designed for this model. It gives me full control over the switches and dials while underwater. There’s an underwater white balance setting which makes the colors easier to process.
