Underwater gardens…

I find little bits of nature that I want to take home, add to my garden…of course I can’t, so I take photos instead. These were little ‘gardens’ underwater, growing in amongst the rocks and the crashing waves.Underwater gardens

I couldn’t have arranged it better if I tried..

Wonderful micro miracles. We just have to open our eyes, look closer and get something that we never expected.

Lovely colours though hey? The trick is to get the camera to focus UNDER the water or all you get is a shine off the surface

Colours are great 🙂 Never tried focus under water…maybe with flash off?

I have a self focusing camera, so look through the view finder until you see it’s focused on the underwater plant – then click the shutter. Sometimes the sheen on the water is too strong (I have plenty of those) and just delete them. Ive noticed the same happens when you take a pic of a bird through the window – if you can get the camera to focus on the bird and not the dirty splodges on the glass, you get a perfectly good photo

Sadly my tiny Olympus does “self nothing” 🙂

Hey – don’t be rude about your tiny Olympus – I had a tiny Panasonic TZ 6 (stolen in SA) and it was a marvelous thing – the photos it took! Its amazing even what my Fujipix managed, one of the first digital cameras on the market
