Snorkeling

We haven’t had the best weather here in Levanger this summer, but we’ve had some nice breaks in between the rain. We finally got our snorkeling gear out for the first time this summer.

I’ve always been fascinated by the world which opens up when you get underneath the surface. Also, being in the water, allows me to get a lot closer to the Haematopus ostralegus, which I captured above.

                 

 

But now, let’s move below the surface. Here is a Pagurus bernhardus:

 

 

and a Carcinus maenas:

And then some nice scenery:

 

 

All photos taken with Olympus Mju Tough-6020. The camera has extremely slow shutter action compared to my Sony Alpha DSLR, so I just have to be patient.

But still I’m pretty happy with the quality of these photos.
