Philippines 2006

The Philipines, spring 2006. My first try with a DSLR underwater (Nikon D70 in Ikelite housing). A lot more difficult than I had imagined to switch from compact to DSLR. So many possibilities to get the wrong settings. Not to talk about the difficulty to have your eye in the camera, thereby loosing reference marks and therefore buoyancy control!
