A beach day

The next few days are forecast to be brutally hot - and on such days, relief can only be found by being underwater.  Having said that, the prospect of sunburn on the bald patch is never good.  I just can't seem to work out how to wear a hat while snorkelling!




The cool waters off the SE coast of Australia are full of life - it's just that much of it seems to swim off before I can press the shutter button!

You can find more pictures from around the world at Our World Tuesday.  SM

I might imagine that happens; the fishes swim away, like the birds fly away ....underwater photography, you are using a special camera outfit for this obviously Stewart

I can't even figure out how to wear a hat when I'm doing water aerobics in the outdoor pool here!

A beautiful beach scene.

Wonderful underwater shots! If you figure out the hat problem, let me know. I've tried snorkeling with a hat on and (big surprise) it doesn't work well!

Absolutely fascinating and breath taking ! Question: How do you get sunburn when you are underwater ?

Wonderful underwater shots, Stewart.

Keep cool and enjoy that lovely water.

That does look cool. I hope you enjoyed cooling off in it. Although I live on a beautiful coastline, you need to wear a wet suit to snorkel or scuba dive.
