Hi Everyone! Here are 3 photos from my trip (Nov. 10-17). I don't usually shoot wide angle but the water clarity was unbelievable!

Wow Dixie! Beautiful as always. I really love the fan coral shot. I've been trying to get a photo like that myself but have never been able to capture it.
The Salt pan photo looks amazing as well!!

Dixie,
Love the pcitures. It helps the time go by until we reach the island in 23 days (but who's counting)

Thanks Everyone! I have a new camera system which I'm really liking a lot!! Gerald this is the first time I've been able to get a nice shot of fan coral too! My strobes are smaller (for macro) so I don't do much wide angle but the conditions were perfect pretty much all week so I spent 1/2 the trip practicing with my fisheye lens. The salt pan photos I got are actually my favourites from the week - the reflections were amazing (2-3 days like this).

Here's a couple of links to some more photos:

Just had to jump back on and post this :)

My wife and I poured some wine, pulled up FB on the big screen and spent almost an hour going through your 2012 Bonaire pictures. It was like a virtual vacation, with each picture bringing back memories and stories of our last trip.

Thanks Dixie!!! :ymmd:

Thanks Gerald! The week went so fast I didn't get a chance to do half the things I had planned out.

After I look at my photos, I usually get on United's website and see when the next cheap flight back to Bonaire is (first week in May out of Buffalo is looking pretty good!!)

Dixie I blew your pictures up, I hope you do not mind.

Absolutely stunning pictures as always. You should be very happy with your new rig. We do need more pictures though.

Thanks for making them bigger (I wasn't sure how to do that!). I do need another trip back soon to practice some more with the new camera!

Ok Dixie.
Still waiting for some more pics as you promised. We have 82 days left until we return to A-11. Keep us from getting depressed until then.

Beautiful, Dixie, just beautiful. Salt Pier is a wonderful dive.

Just another few photos that make us feel a little better that we have less than 80 days to go before we jump into the warm waters of Bonaire. Our manta watch group will be gathering on Bari Reef to wait and see if by chance we can get into the water before his passing by. Usually spend my first dive about 90 minutes just waiting and watching per chance that will be the day and time. But, your pics will keep us in check until we touch down.
