Dabbling in video - with turtles!

May 13, 2015

As a landscape photographer, moving images rather scare me, but looking at some of the amazing nature videos that other people take, I thought it was time I had a bash. Fortunately, a recent trip to the Caribbean created a great opportunity! Click the image on the right to view.

We were out for a snorkelling trip from St. Thomas on Castaway Cat, a gorgeous day sail catamaran, and I was lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time to capture this huge sea turtle coming up for air – you can also just see its friend on the bottom as well. Everyone else had just headed back to the boat, so I was able to get some great footage with my little Fuji under-water camera – without being surrounded by legs and flippers!

Having managed a fairly successful ‘first attempt’, I decided to set myself up a YouTube channel – and this is my starter for ten! Will add more as and when I take anything that I think is good enough.
