Jaak Põder - Sunny underwater

Jaak Põder - Sunny underwater

I was in Egypt for a week for my 'beach and sun' vacation and only camera I took with me with me was my compact waterproof Pentax W60. So far I have been using that camera for just experimenting in shallow waters of Estonia (other than family events) -- knee deep sea, rain water pools, shallow ponds and streams. Now I went for the deep sea (deep meaning 1 meter and more). And there the behavior I expected from the camera was not what I got.

This pic is taken on almost at midday directly into the deep. Fish were few meters below me and sea floor was not visible.

Location: Red Sea, Egypt
