Gallery: Wet: Scooter Fog Diving
These were shot on the Oil Rig Eureka, just off the coast of Los Angeles.
The water was very green at 117 feet. We were scootering to the far west-facing side of the rig (looking into the sun) when all of a sudden streams of small bubbles started pouring up from a seam in the steel pilings.
We recognized this as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and Claudette, without hesitation drove her scooter directly into the fog, made a blind turn and slowly emerged from the billowing bubbles.
This Series is very special and will likely never be repeated again. Its one of those "right place, right time" moments.
I got off about 30 shots in about 4 minutes. These are some of my favorites.
