March 2005 Kona, Hawaii Photo Gallery

In March of 2005 we ventured back to Kona for Kathy's first dives as a newly certified PADI diver. In addition, these are the first photos taken with my Olympus C8080 housed in an Ikelite housing with TTL strobe. I really like this new camera setup!

Kathy's first dive after certification: the descent...

A 12 year old girl who was an excellent diver...

This guy was right next to the mooring, but nobody noticed him!

Going up to take a breath...

Classic Hawaiian lava rock and coral...

Cute little whitemouth moray. I got one shot, and then he disappeared while I fumbled with the new camera. Odd the coral lump to his right looks like an eel too, eh?

Crown of Thorns Starfish Eating Coral. The Spines Have Mild Venom...
