Week 24: Another broken strobe light

February 17, 2009 - Filed under Scuba Diving, Underwater Photography, Weekly Report

The battery pack on my strobe light broke again. This is the second time it’s happened in the last 6 months and as you can probably imagine I’m less than impressed. It couldn’t have come at worse time either. We’re nearing the end of our stay here in the Philippines, and there isn’t enough time to get a replacement shipped before we leave so, it’ll have to wait till we get to Thailand. I’m really bummed as there were a couple of dive sites I wanted to return to, to capture a few last shots to remember them by.

Despite this, Mike and I did a couple of dives this week anyway. It’s still beautiful and I love it, but I kept wanting to take pictures of all the cute little critters. I think it’s definitely gonna take me a while to get used to diving without my camera. Hopefully I can figure out how to replace it once we get to Thailand, but until then here are the last of my underwater pictures.

    thanks rob! should be able to get it fixed when we get to Thailand, so hopefully will only be a couple of weeks without it.

    Hi Myla, Thanks. Kelly’s underwater rig is a Canon 40D with an Ikelite housing and DS125 strobe, and a couple different ports for the macro and wide angle lenses. You can see it here: http://www.haveinternetwilltravel.com/2008/09/13/learning-to-shoot-underwater/
