Fourth of July, 2005
Trip on the Peace to Anacapa Island

We made the usual 7am departure and arrived at Anacapa a short time later.
Everyone looked more normal in the morning.
We started at the west end and worked our way around the island on our successive dives. I used macro set ups on the morning dives. Anacapa is such a treasure trove of small critters.
I also noticed that there was a population boom going on with Spanish Shawl nudibranchs. There were big ones and there were little ones at every dive site. With just a little shopping around it was easy to get a variety of Spanish shawl photos.
I tried some wide angle in the afternoon. The water was very green and conditions were much better for macro..
Chris Grossman worked on his new camera on the surface intervals. He learned that it doesn't matter what kind of batteries he uses, after about 600 photos, he has to put in fresh ones.
The highlight of the day for me was that I had brought along some Kodachrome 25. There is something so very special about this film. These are a few of my Kodachrome photos..
Special thanks to the crew of the Peace for spending their 4th of July with us.
I hope that everyone had a 4th of July that was as happy and as safe as ours!
Until next time........
