I have been scuba diving for years and it is one of my favorite activities all year round and a fantastic way to experience something undiscovered. Plus a mind blowing way to excluded the busy daily life for an hour or two.
Some time ago, I decided to go with a dual tank setup. Despite the heavy lifting, the main reason is basically longer dives times, better balance and more safe and redundant setup. As I am also a passionate under water photographer, I hope to get more time to find the right camera angels and exposure without being too concerned about air consumption.
My new double setup is configured according to the DIR (Do-it-right) instructions thus giving better self reliant diving setup if a malfunction should occur.
The setup is rigged by 2x12L tanks, Ursuit donut BCD, Ursuit harness and 2x ScubaPro MK25 and G260 second stages.
The other day I received my new underwater housing. Soon I'm going to test it and I think the best practice is to test it without a camera inside 🙂 However, I am tempted to just dive in and start taking fine pictures and some great video from under the surface. One small problem is the value you bring with you down under when you also add camera and optic etc. You really don't want to see saltwater in your DSLR camera…!
Underwater housings is a big jungle but I have over the years enjoyed the way Ikelite produces their housing and the features and controls they provide you with while in the water. I have other housings too and they also work, but typically they have some limitation that over time starts to annoy you.
So, I cannot wait to see how much better this should perform compared to the old one I been using for years – I need to do some comparison shots.
Stay tuned for some underwater footage.
I don’t know why I like this picture (from a dive yesterday) but probably because I love sea food and enjoy watching their habitat.
Came across this beautiful sea anemone yesterday on a dive. Underwater flora is fantastic and colorful and proves that water is one of the most important resources we have. We must protect the ocean at all costs.
I met this beautiful (female I guess?) Jellyfish the other day while diving at Søbadet (near Middelfart/Denmark). There are quite a few jellyfish around at this time of year but they pose so well and just look amazing. The underwater world needs to be explored more!
After my bike crash back in the fall I have been in scuba diving quarantine. Today I was cleared after the lastest CT scan a week ago.
Still having a few blood clutterings outside the lung and needs a new CT in 6 months but nothing that prevent any activity including diving…
So back into exploring the underwater world…can’t wait to get my fins back on 🙂
