Longfin Anthias (Pseudanthias hawaiiensis), Garden Eel Cove.
My wife and I went on a scuba diving vacation in Kona a couple of months ago. We used to do this kind of thing at least once a year, but recently, life has gotten in the way and we haven’t been able to find the opportunity as often. With my social media consulting practice in full swing, work has been busy and the time off was very welcome.
Dwarf Moray Eel (Gymnothorax melatremus).
Of course, life underwater isn’t complete without a camera, so I brought back a few photos to add to the portfolio. In case anyone is wondering, I still shoot an old Nikon D100 underwater in a Light & Motion Titan D100 housing with two Sea & Sea YS-90DX strobes. Old gear, but it works well, and I never felt the need to invest in an upgrade.
