Last night I was catching up with a friend over at Nik Software. We touched on the normal topics of photography, but more importantly we swapped a few Cousteau stories. Apparently both he and Tony Corbell are divers and planning on getting back in the water. The story I told was about a recent wreck dive in Cozumel. We dove a 140ft ship who’s entrance was guarded by large green moray. Seriously, he was big and here are the photos to prove it!
Processing Note: To keep things in the Nik family, I used their new Nik Silver Efex Pro 2 to perform the B&W conversion. Don’t worry, Silver Efex Pro 2 is incredible, it’s my old noisy point and shoot that is lacking. I just can’t justify the cost of a housing for my terrestrial camera for 2 weeks of diving a year.
Note: Eels, although you don’t want to provoke them (or anything for that matter), are pretty mellow. Not much to worry about when you come across one. Just be psyched that you saw it, eels this big are pretty rare.
