You’re in France or you’re not.
St-Leu Fishers apparently decided on friday evening (after a few beers) to get on strike and are preventing boats from going to sea, therefore it is not possible to dive on saturday and sunday. Cherry on the cake, Abyss is closed on monday…fortunately Ben (one of the key staff) told me to checkout Atlantis Plongée. That means that the plan has to be changed as I was initially considering to slowly go hiking from thursday to saturday.
I received the DVD that Mike managed to put up after a lot of work considering all the footage he had from our trip in Sangalaki. The result is absolutely amazing. Some sequences are available courtesy of Digital Diver. You can find them here. You have 4 versions of different quality (9.6MB, 15MB, 29.5MB, 45.5MB)
I’m back from La Réunion, after a week of work and a week of vacation. I will post pictures asap but the result do not live up to expectations. This is simply not the place to go for underwater photography.
I’m now diving with Abyss Plongee, nothing against Atlantis Plongee as they have been extremely cool and friendly. From a photographic point of view the first dive was a disaster, I was realizing during the first dive that something was wrong with the camera flash settings as everything was desynchronized from time to time and every wide angle shot was…err..without light, until I realized some time later that the camera was apparently reset after I changed the batteries. The fact that there’s a bit of a rush underwater does not help much to have a clear mind.
