Beach Walk 645 – Underwater Myths

I think I may be on one end of this spectrum, but I sometimes experience a little let down when I stick my head in goggles under the water. What we see published in magazines and in underwater films is amazing scenery. In reality, it usually does not look that perfect-pretty. Water absorbs a lot of light, so unless you are diving with a light or at high noon in clear, shallow water, you will not see the same colors with your eyes that a camera with light can. So today we are going underwater on an average day, with no special effects, to give you the expected view, if not the perfected view. I still love it anyway, and I hope it helps set your expectations to a more reasonable comfort zone too.

h3. About Today’s Show

We departed the shore and went for a wander in the water today. Cali – we found honu! This is the mouth of the Kawai Nui Marsh so the bottom is a little sandy, nonetheless the water experience was wonderful. We hope you enjoy it!

We just love our “go anywhere” camera – it can take still pics and movies, and can move easily from land to sea. Olympus 720 SW
