Free diving in the Caribbean

I had my first chance to use my GoPro while snorkeling in Bocas del Toro, Panama. This shot was from about 10 feet down, and really shows the beautiful green that this water turned when the sun came out.GOPR2297.jpg

Watercolor Diving

I snapped this shot from about 15 feet under the subject, while snorkeling in Bocas del Toro, Panama. Beautiful waters, and nearly crystal clear, although we found out that January wasn’t the best time for snorkeling because of high surf.

Sea turtle staring contest

The expression that this turtle displays in his venerable eyes is part of the reason that I love turtles so much!Sea Turtle.JPG

Sailing from time

Over the bow
I stared deep into the blue
A reflection looked back
Dark, it watched me
We fell, we swam, and we drown
We became the sea
We became the sun
We were lost in time
Time forgot to hold us
We forgot to watch the time

Calsbar Quarry, Gulliver, Michigan

Calsbar Quarry

A colorful glimpse into a unique quarry in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. This former limestone quarry was filled almost instantly when miners hit a natural spring. The white limestone gives the water an almost tropical color, while remaining crystal clear to see the sunken buildings, equipment, logs, and wildlife at the bottom (about 20 feet deep when this photo was taken). It used to be one of my favorite swimming places, but was drained in recent years to resume limestone mining.
