we did some amazing snorkeling in akumal, there was a beautiful lagoon with tons of colorful fish. i got a great waterproof case for my little canon elph digital camera and it worked wonderfully. i could use all the fuctions i normally can use out of water and there is even an underwater setting. it was still extremely hard to get great shots, what with fish being really fast, not being able to hold still underwater, the sun not being in the perfect location and cloudy water conditions. oh well, i still got some good ones. here are a few, they really don't do justice to the fish in real life but sometimes we have to take what we can get. the next thing i need to do is find a good book so i can id all these fish and have better reference photos for art!
