Once the kids had (briefly) exhausted themselves I would do a bit of snorkelling. I sorted out the "sun burn on the head" issue by using a very thin hood - normally warm under a wet suit in very cold water. It may look a bit over the top - but it seems to work well!
One of the things I like about snorkelling is the ability to be in that transition zone between water and air - and in this zone the light is refracted and reflected in many different ways.
These images were taken with a little waterproof point and shot, held out in front of me and angled a little up at the sky. I rather like the results.
You can find more sky shots (and less terms you last heard in Year 9 Physics!) at Sky Watch Friday.
Oh my, these are just mystical!ReplyDelete
Beautiful underwater pictures, Stewart.ReplyDelete
Neato! You could to do more of these, a view rarely seen by us.ReplyDelete
Oh, these are mystical indeed!! Wonderful captures for the day, Stewart!!ReplyDelete
Oh these are super neat! I've always wanted to go snorkeling.ReplyDelete
Pretty cool Stewart!ReplyDelete
Very cool almost surreal. Great idea there. MBReplyDelete
Lovely shots - so creative!ReplyDelete
Those did come out well. I'd love to try underwater photography.ReplyDelete
they're great to see Stewart; how interesting under the surface it would be; my favourite is the first imageReplyDelete
Cool photos, Stewart. A neat way to capture the sky! Have a happy weekend!ReplyDelete
Without your explanation I'm not sure I would have guessed what that last one was, it looks quite ethereal.ReplyDelete
Very cool Stewart!ReplyDelete
What makes you think I would remember even one term I learned in 9th grade Physics ... I was lucky to remember them when they were being taught :) I love this unique venture on your part. My son is a scuba diver and travels far and wide to take awesome dives and yet, I have probably seen more of your pictures, as of today, then any of his. Unlike me, he isn't big into camera's, just loves the experience. So this is quiet a treat, Stewart, and discloses yet another of your many talents. Glad you are able to spend time on the beach with the kids ... those are times that will always be precious in your memory.ReplyDelete

Awesome! A very neat view point. And you staying cool too.ReplyDelete
Love 'em. I hope your back and legs are covered too, not just your head.ReplyDelete
I'd say the results are amazing! Glad you're staying cool. I'd love to send you a bit of our arctic blast.ReplyDelete
You just keep on finding unique ways to photograph the sky!
Have a wonderful week-end!
What awesome images!ReplyDelete
Underwater pics! So beautifull!ReplyDelete
Wonderful, I though they were paintings at first!ReplyDelete
Wow, great photos, I like the water surface from below.ReplyDelete
Love these underwater shots, and not sure why buy they seem very appropriate for skywatch shots!!ReplyDelete
Stewart - I was hoping I'd hear from you on my crow question. Thanks for confirming what the crows are up to and for the book recommend too. I just wish I knew where they roosted. That must be a sight to see.ReplyDelete
You do take some interesting photos.
Fascinating photos of color and movement!ReplyDelete
Beautiful pictures and what a perfect place and way to spend those hot hot days.ReplyDelete
