|Looking at the forecast it appeared like the swells were increasing and rain was predicted for next couple of days, so Sue and I joined our friend Alan Studley for an early shallow dive at Lobos. Tomorrow is Alan birthday and he requested a photo-shoot day as part of his birthday gift. He also had several N19 scooters with him so we decided to try the little scooters at the same time that he took some pictures.|
We headed towards Granite Point Pinnacle looking for the nice hydro-corals in that area. Although the visibility (20-30ft) was not has good as a couple of weeks ago, we found some very colourful pinnacles and some nice kelp areas to work on images. A red Cabezon worked very well with Susan at the shallowest top of Granite Point Wall.
On the way back we found a friendly pipe-fish which let of take turns while making portraits of itself :-)
I'll try adding some photos to the BAUE gallery in a couple of days.
