First dive with new Canon underwater housing for my old Canon PowerShot S40 digital camera.

David Bryant spent an hour with me before the dive going over the basics of the camera and the appropriate settings for using it underwater.

Then we journeyed down to Blairgowrie Pier to put the theory into practice.

Problem: Turned out the 190 bar fill I thought had been done the previous Sunday, hadn't actually happened. Thus I only had 60 bar. (Makes mental note to always check before leaving the dive shop in the future.)

Solution: Enter from the landing. Journey on surface out to the end of the pier. Then return on the surface after the photo session.

David took me to a pylon with a large stag horn on it. He found two seahorses there. And so, I began to take pictures.

Those available here are the best of a bad lot. You'll notice all of the classic mistakes being made.

Visibility was ordinary, but David still managed to find quite a few great subjects. Pity ,e and my camera work isn't up to par.

However, it was a fun introduction to underwater digital photography and I'm looking forward to learning more from David in later sessions.

Note: BYS has put up the new "Dive Safely" sign at the entrance.
