Swimming with dolphins and more: October 26-29 2006
The yoga photo trip run by Yoga Warrior to Ponta Mamoli was a trip from heaven. Due to work pressures and also the focus on taking my photography to the next level I have been scarce in the underwater photographic environment. The trip was threatened by weather on day one but with some positive attitude the boat launched only to find a pod of dolphins surfing waves on the point. New snorkellers and old hands enjoyed the interaction for over 40 minutes and allowed big smiles to return to the beach for a hearty sailors breakfast. To read Yoga Warriors review Click here
For those underwater photogrphers who didn't join us I'm afraid you missed a beauty with rare and unique photographic opportunities from underwater work with dolphins and reefs to horses on the beach.
The dolphin encounter safari was a resounding success and I even got to swim and photograph a humpback whale and calf. The following image is taken out of a series of six consecutive images showing the pair resting and then as they floated closer to me how the mother slowly dived in order to inspect me closer and then the calf joined her and slowly they circled round me before slowly drifting off into the blue. We spotted the same pair over the next three days.
Photographers dived on Ponto Mamoli's spectacular reefs in 40m viz with rebreather and cameras ranging from underwater point and shoot housings to top end Nikon D200 Sea&Sea underwater Housings.
Should you be interested in underwater photographic courses or safaris with a difference call or email Andrew as the next photo workshop will be in the first quarter of 2007
