Lake Rotoma dive

Lake Rotoma on a sunny bright winters day – that one time I had the camera on ascent after diving with a Marine Science student.

While diving Letterbox point Lake Rotoma (Rotorua), We had been down at 10m for over 45min in 13C water doing a population density survey of freshwater muscles, we had our GoPro camera with us to take reference photos… We followed the bottom on our ascent and just for fun we were swimming in the shallow water headed for our exit point when I looked up and saw the light just streaming through the water and like so many other dives wishing I had a camera… Suddenly occurred that it was in my pocket so it was very quickly pulled out and turned on and with the last flashing bar of the battery got off a few awesome shots.
