Monterey's Underwater World
These are some diving pictures taken in the Monterey Bay area by myself,
Dan Clanon and my friend, Tennyson
We use a Sea and Sea 2EX with a macro lens or a 20mm wide angle lens. Some
of these shots were taken with my old Ikelite Aquashot with Fuji disposables
and a macro or water correcting lens.
