Another Great Day In Paradise:)

Story goes like this: We had pretty rough seas yesterday, 2-4' and building to 5-6', but wanted to each get 2 tanks in, especially our out of town guests. Everyone nearly limited on lobsters, 3 dives. As seas were picking up, hesitantly, Jack & I went in for our last dive. The conditions below were strong current first dive, so we moved inshore, and a bit calmer. Good vis, and lots of bugs And fish. I'm just cruising along a small ledge, saw a lemon shark, shot a Scamp And a nice Mango, both tore off. Then came up on this Gag, playing hide & Seek with me. With Jack's eyes, I too spotted it, 2 feet away from me! Didnt even have time to think about bolting, nailed him right behind the Gill Plate. Its a sharky area, so Shark Shield goes on, and up we went, did NOT want to float him in those seas. Good Day on the water with our great dive buddies, Tania and Sylvain.

PS, the last shot I just threw in for giggles, he is my precious Yorkie, Winston Allman, newest addition to our family

this was my first try, getting ready to view vid now, but i was caught up in the moment with that Gag, so sure it will be a Dizzie Vid, LOL, but i nearly lost the camera, came loose, so you really need to keep an eye. sooo more news to follow, hopefully can figure out editing feature, will have some cropping to do.

ok. thanks. i guess ill have to figure something out, cause i am not sure with the headstrap, unless people have tips about headstrap success. cause i know a few people like and dont like the gun mount idea, plus im not sure if i want to drill some holes into my brand new KOAH.

I've been wearing the Go Pro headstrap for several dives now and it seems to be ok. A different perspective than on the gun. The head strap thing is not secure enough for diving. I wear mine under a hood and have been happy with it.

BTW... Very nice Fish!

Re: Another Great Day In Paradise:)

Thank you all and my first try withposting the Go Pro was great, but def need more practice on keeping it still, but I'm amazed at the clarity and color given some of the poor vis. I have the 1080 hero, flat lense. Highly recommend it. May try posting it.
