Those pics are from here than and everywhere. No recent trip (just St Kitts, my yearly sojourn) however, will be diving Maui in May and am looking to get a new camera with an external flash for those dives.
Any suggestions? Know anyone who can make suggestions?
I lov emy Sony Cybershot, but outfitting it for external flash will be $700, I can do a new camer and external flash for that amount, the Sealife DC800 Pro 8.0 Megapixel 4 X Optical Zoom 2.7- Inch LCD Screen Underwater/Land Camera in Removable Housing with Digital Pro Flash.
Comments, suggestions?

I hope to be able to spend more time this year.

NOAA's Maritime Heritage Program is providing a Nautical Archaeology Society (NAS) course for NABS members in Key Largo the end of May - are you taking the training?

FKNMS and the State of Florida are teaching the Heritage Awareness Diving Seminar in early April and hopefully (grant dependent) again later in the year (September)..

Season's Greetings! As this is December 31st, and 2009 is upon us, allow
me to wish you and all of the members of AUE, a Happy & Prosperous
New Year.

I noticed a greeting from you on my page addressed to "Ron." I don't know
if you mistakenly sent it to me or confused the name "Ric" with "Ron"
