I have just purchased a small compact camera, Sony DSC-TX30, as a back up for my heavy DSLR. As it is waterproof down to 10 metres I decided to have a go at some underwater photography this afternoon. Here are my first attempts in the sea at the end of Las Negras beach. The photo above is of a shoal of Cow Bream. They appear in large numbers and feed close to the shore. My snorkeling is limited by just using goggles and breathing tube so I only see fish that come close to shore.
Striped Mullet and Two-banded Bream
Here are some stripped mullet feeding on the bottom. Apparently they are highly prized as a food species.Above them are swimming a couple of Two-banded Bream.
I think these three fish are White Bream. I need some practice to improve the quality of these photos. I hope the sea stays warm enough to have a few more goes this month..
The last fish is a Painted Comber. These fish are found near reefs and like to hide and feed in holes in the rocks
