Hi All, I thought it was about time I posted a pic or two. Been out diving and practicing taking pics and I am slowly but surely getting there thanks to this site.

Found this orange Dendronotus iris which is rare for us, we usually see white/clear ones. I took this with my Canon Powershot A620 with a sealife strobe. ISO-50 Sh-1/30 Ap-F5 in about 50' of cold water, 42F Vancouver BC, Canada

Merry Christmas all :D

Wet Rookie (what's your name?), you don't seem to be a rookie at all. Very nice photo of the Dendronotus iris. Down in SoCal, when they are prevalent as they were this year, these guys can come in a multitude of colors and sizes. Check out this link:

Hope Santa was good to you. Best wishes for 'branking in the New Year!

Kevin

PS: @ 42F, may your seals hold! brrr...
