I recently went with my wife to the Bahamas. She is on the board of a national trade organization for her industry, and they had their annual meeting there. Since I had never been there before, I decided to accompany her.
I had heard about the resort, Atlantis on Paradise Island, but I figured there must be some nature nearby. Not so much. This is a huge, over-the-top resort that has little to do with the Bahamas. It certainly was a nice place to visit, but it was more like Las Vegas (there was a casino) combined with a large water park. Not our kind of place, but then, that wasn't our choice.
I knew the Bahamas had great water. The beach by the resort was crowded and not all that exciting. But I did find a small lagoon that was pretty cool. I had bought a GoPro Hero video camera for snorkeling, plus I had a mask with correction for my glasses and a light wetsuit (when you are just floating in the water while snorkeling, 70 degree water gets cold). Check out this video:
Also, on a different note, I will be doing a workshop on flowers and flower photography in the Central California area in April. It will be a lot drier than the lagoon! And we'll have a lot of fun. Check it out at Light Photographic Workshops in Los Osos.
