I put this in the photography section but maybe should be here. It's video footage taken snorkeling in western province, Solomon Islands. A plankton bloom made for funky colours and poor visibility at times but we make the most with what we are given. Enjoy.

Great video. What did you shoot it with?

Cool, I am new fairly new to starting a saltwater tank, I thought about going down to the Florida keys and maybe go snorkeling, Since I am new I think it would be cool to see an actual reef.

Best is via live aboard. And don't forget to purchase one of the wood carvings . . . :love2:

Awesome! The visibility there is spectacular. I love the scene with the two file fish over the stag coral garden. Nicely fimed. Can you share both equipment and technique. I also make short snorkle videos and am anxious to learn.

Thanks for the kind comments. Everything was shot free diving with a Gopro Hero 3 mounted on a segment of my fishing spear.

An adult Ostracion cubicus - yellow boxfish. Would have liked to see some juveniles but didn't manage to do so.
