Some photos from diving in the Philippines

The diving in Anilao, Philippines is ridiculously amazing.  Off the charts beautiful.  I spent just over 4 hours underwater today and am hoping to spend even more time under tomorrow.  With the boat rides to the sites, eating the great food and trying to carve out a bit of time to sleep that doesn’t leave much time for writing great posts here.  But I don’t really have to write all that much when I can just post the photos that show how wonderful the underwater environment is here.  This is just a sample of the scenes I got to experience today.  Minimal bandwidth on the internet connection here precludes me sharing more, but they will be posted soon enough.  Enjoy!

I'm Seth, also known as the Wandering Aramean. I was bit by the travel bug 30 years ago and there's no sign of a cure. I fly ~200,000 miles annually; these are my stories. You can connect with me on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn.


  1. Nice photos. What kind of underwater camera did you use ? My recollection of diving in the Philippines was the strong currents. But my all time favorite has to be the Red Sea.

  2. Positively beautiful. Have you ever considered using Flickr for your shots? I'm also curious in the technical details of the photos – I imagine they required extensive post-picture processing for light levels?

  3. The photos are all shot using a Canon SD850IS in the Canon housing and an Ikelite DS50 strobe.

    I do surprisingly little post-procesing with my shots. I'll crop just about all of them and then make minor adjustments to the brightness and color temperature if appropriate. Basically if the "I'm feeling lucky" button in Picasa doesn't please me I just move on to the next photo. I'd rather work hard on actually getting the picture right in the camera than slave over my laptop to "fix" the shot.

    And I've looked at flickr but I have some issues with the interface and the options I have as a photographer there. I have chosen to use SmugMug instead for my hosting (Millerworks Gallery). I posted these few pix right into the blog rather than using my hosting site because of some bandwidth limitations here in the Philippines. I'll have them all up on the gallery site early next week and I'll post a line when I do. There are way more than the few I've posted so far!
