Again, Saint Jean Beach, with its sea turtles. So elegant!
Finally the wrap up/poster of my Saint Barth Portfolio 2009.
I have started to publish this portfolio on June 18, 2009 with this post.
The idea was the following:
I will publish 2 pictures from each region of the island per post. Force to choose ;-)
I hope I haven’t bothered you too much with these 16 posts!
I really had to finish, as the countdown is running for our next stay in Saint Barth (February 2010)! About 50 days to go :-)
Some pictures taken from our snorkeling session in Colombier Bay with a Canon IXUS 700 and a waterproof case WP-DC70. As I have read, it is not so easy to take good pictures underwater… Anyway, a first try!
I have tried to find out what I have seen ;-) Not always 100% sure. So if you see something wrong, please do not hesitate to correct me.
We had our first snorkeling session on last Wednesday but the vision was not ideal under water, as there is still a quite strong swell. Anyway, I saw my first sea-turtle in Saint Jean Bay, exactly at the same place as last year, just after the white boat in the middle of the picture below!
Bottom is at about 3-4m there. Sea-turtle was about motionless and eating some underwater herbs. The turtle was about 80cm long. It is also the first time that I see a pilot fish on top of the turtle shell!
I have quite massively adjusted the pictures (contrast, color and saturation). The pictures are a bit pixelated but still from far better as I have thought!
Camera: Canon IXUS 700 with a Canon waterproof case (WP-DC70).
