Stingray city was such a joy to swim in, after realizing that these animals were safe to be among, pure elation sets in as we come in contact with these creatures.
My brother and I were floating happily here when this lazy stingray comes up from behind him while brushing him with his fin. My brother jumped with surprise and amazingly enough this stingray was not afraid at all after this reaction.
As feared as these creatures are for having killed one of the most famous naturalists in the world, they are extremely docile. You can see the the much talked about poisonous barb used for defence barely sticking out of the base of the tail.
Photographic Details: As outlined in previous posts I used my trusty ewa-marine camera bag for this shot on shutter priority mode for 1/250 of a second. This was still fast enough to capture the gliding stingray as it swam into my face, their bellies are so soft it made me laugh!
1/250s f/6.3 ISO100 22mm (35mm eq:35.2mm)
JR: I use a Nikon D3 and D4, a couple of GoPro cameras, Aquatech underwater housings and, surprisingly, an Ewa-marine SLR housing, which is basically a high end Ziploc bag; but I have used it for a lot of water work in Hawaii and Mexico. The price is right at a few hundred dollars, compared to a few thousand dollars for a hard housing.
From January 21st through 29th

And have a look at alle the new ewa-marine products, as well as products by Ikelite, Gates Housings. Equinox and ULIboards that are brands distributed by ewa-marine in Europe.
Summer is perhaps best known for heat and when the heat is great, it is most comfortable to be in an air-conditioned building or ... to be wet. The latter sounds more fun to me, but ... water and electronic camera gear are at odds with each other. Unless you have a waterproof housing for that gear.
While the high end dedicated rigid housings are very nice and may produce better image quality, a PVC underwater housing such as those made by EWA-Marine (http://www.the-digital-picture.com/Reviews/Ewa-Marine-U-B-100-Underwater-Housing.aspx) are far more affordable while still allowing unique photo opportunities.
In this photo, I was standing near the side of the pool with camera ready. Because capturing the perfect position of a normally thrown tennis ball is very challenging, I opted for a toss-straight-up technique. The dog wanted the ball, but didn't want to jump into the water to get it. I tossed the ball straight up so that it stopped moving at the ideal height and just far enough out so the dog couldn't reach it. The latter part mattered because it was game-over when the dog caught the ball and ran away with her prize.
Make this the summer that you waterproof your camera. Add wet shots to your portfolio. Capture the fun memories of the summer water activities. Get an underwater housing.

Is this the way we should be going?
ewa-marine has been manufacturing under water housings since 1970. Housings to fit nearly every film-, video- and stills photo camera on the market.
All ewa-marine housings are made in our factory in Germany and all models feaature a hardened, optical glass front port.
It's the ideal solution if you want to retain you standards on professional, high quality pictures as you take your analog or digital camera diving, snorkeling, sailing, canoeing or out into real extreme, foul weather.
