Unfortunatly I don' t have more to share, cause my camera had battery issues after this (my fault, I packaged it too quickly...)
Great Pic Fabrice!! This is now my new wallpaper.

What equipment did you use to get this pic? Digital, film? Did you use a wide angle lens?

These are the type of pics that I want to take so I am curious.
Hi Scot,

I used a Sea & Sea motor marine II, with a 16mm wide angle lens, and no flash. This is a very handy set up to take pictures while freediving.

If you like this kind of "scenic" pictures, take a look at my web page http://apneist.free.fr/maldives/index.html
I used the same camera, but with a flash.

Do you go often to Safaga ? Would you recommend it ? With what organizations did you go there ? Any tips ?
