Pic of the Day – Topside Tuesday: Thai Sunset

Awoosh.Images.Thai.Sunset

Just a quick pic for today, as a sunny day beckons me out into my somewhat neglected summer garden.

This was a beautiful sunset in the Similan Islands of Thailand, taken during a great trip on The Junk live aboard. The image was captured with a Canon G10 digicam in wide angle mode. This little camera has become my “go to” topside camera on trips, as it is lightweight and easy to carry on hikes etc. Mr G also has a housing for it so he can shoot it underwater. I never cease to be amazed by the quality images that this little camera can pump out, both topside and underwater.

About Judy G Diver

Born and raised on the west coast of Canada, I have always felt a strong connection to the sea. But for many years, I stayed on the surface, afraid of what lurked down deep. When I was in my early 30's, with three young children (aka the P's), my husband (aka Mr G) signed us up for a SCUBA certification course, as a surprise. Although I had my fears, my stubbornness prevailed, and somehow I made it through four murky, frigid, cold water dives in Vancouver to successfully pass the course. Soon after we went diving off the west coast of Mexico, in the Sea of Cortez, where my eyes were opened to the beauty and other-worldliness of the life down under. And the rest, as they say, is history. I currently have well over 2000 dives under the belt, and I have been fortunate to travel extensively in Asia, Australia, Fiji, Galapagos, Costa Rica, California, the Caribbean, Mexico and here in British Columbia. After shooting hefty DSLRs for many years, I just switched over to a groovy Olympus Micro Four Thirds camera, in a Nauticam housing, with dual Sea & Sea strobes and a bag full of lenses. In addition to this blog and my personal website (Awoosh.com/Directory), which is linked at the top of the blog, my stuff has been widely published in a variety of magazines and websites, including an ongoing regular monthly feature on Scubadiving.com. All links to this work can be found in this blog.
