Description
A bright sunny day lit this shallow wreck, the seas were pretty rough which made capturing the best moment for over under really challenging. Luckily I had 9 frames per second to use. Thanks Nikon. I love my D3. We had dived 3 wrecks this dive finishing on this one. I asked the boat driver if he would free dive it for me. I took my fins off and clipped them to some metal. I inflated my bcd. I turned my strobes off to get a fast shutter speed. I turned my housing upside down so I did not have the weight of the strobes making what was already a difficult shot impossible. Then the guide dived into the hold of this wreck. Just one chance to a level under over shot.
