So, I’m a bit out of practice on my shore diving. Kicked alllllll the way out to Deadman’s to drop down in some Sargassum (grr), almost immediately found an octo under a rock (yay!), and got about 15 shots before my strobe batteries died! Dammit. First time using my snoot here in SoCal and also first time with the 105, so most of those 15 shots were black haha.
Good snoot practice though, and very happy to get a dive in! There was absolutely no way to get any decent shots where he was hiding, but managed some keepers with the snoot!
