After sitting out last weekend and visiting Phoenix next weekend, I needed a scuba fix. The swells have picked up and the wind didn't help much, but I was able to try out Margaret Webb's 105 lens on the Redondo barge and Avalon wreck. Both sites had surge and a slight current, so I didn't get any decent photos. The 105 doesn't allow for much camera movement compared to my 90mm.

Visibility on the barge was only ten feet, but the Two-spot octopus eggs are finally developing. Kevin Lee first spotted the nest last July, so these guys are taking their sweet time.

Visibility at the Avalon stern was twenty feet. I should have shot wide angle.

If conditions allow, I'll try the 90mm lens tomorrow.
