Brent's Photography

Post by Brent on June 5th 2010, 6:38 pm

Some nice looking areas:

- Very swimmable when the current / wind is agreeable. A bit deeper than the other places shown in the other photos.
- I like this. Amazing flow, yet sheltered.
- Just WOW.
- Again, good flow here.
- Just one of the smaller tidepools along Keels beach.
- Another WOW.


In depth:

- See the orange spot on the algae? That’s a nudibranch. I’m actually standing on a small, algae-coated ridge that outlines this small tidepool on the ocean side of it. =O
- Interesting macro.
- A snail and som’more macro of sorts.
- Shrimpy shrimpy shrimp.
- Definitely low tide. Some nice coralline visible.
- There was some interesting life visible here. This was one of the last places we visited though so I never got to go in depth, unfortunately.
- Nice little inlet.
- Such beauty. I’d really like and ID here please.
- A small channel. Runs about 30ft inshore.
- Another shot of the same channel.


I have so many pictures of this trip (200+). It took me a long time to narrow it down to these pictures (above). Haha

Thanks. I was rushed to get them though, as I was with my aunt and her young son.

Any ideas on that plant, though ( the white one- url next to "Such beauty. I'd really like to get an ID here please )? It is completely submerged in the picture, by the way. Wink

[e]

In fact, an ID of any of the species of plant shown would be great.

[e2] Except the rockweed/wrackweed. ;]

You might PM bluenassarius about those. He seems to be an expert on Macros whereas I am not.

I've actually got an ID on that brown macro (with the little white nodules) posted thanks to the book 'A PHOTOGRAPHIC GUIDE TO Seashore Life IN THE NORTH ATLANTIC Canada to Cape Cod' by J. Duane Sept.

It was actually just a macro with Sinistral Spiral Tubeworms Spirorbis Spirorbis on it. Who'd've thought? Most of the others are in said book as well... Just some species of Kelp and Rockweed, some Knotted Wrack and what I believe to be Maiden Hair Sea Lettuce Ulva Intestinalis.

Thanks for the suggestion though, but I'm pretty good for identifications now, unless of course I end up finding something extraordinarily odd. Unlikely? Wink

We have a similar occurrence of a similar species, if not the same, in California.

Yeah. A lot of what I've been seeing around here has a range in the Pacific as well. You've got more diversity over in SoCal though, I think.

Oh, and I am pleased to report that I have an underwater casing for my Sony Cyber-Shot DSC W210 camera. I tried it out today at the beach, got a few pictures but the waves were really pounding me around. I wasn't daring enough to go out to the tidepools today, as they were so large. I'm pretty sure there's a hurricane warning for Nova Scotia so perhaps it had something to do with that storm. Whatever the reason for the rough seas, I'm hoping it'll be better tomorrow. In all fairness though, I did have a good time in the water what-with said waves.

I also saw a few SEA BUTTERFLIES today! The pictures didn't turn out great as the sand bed kept getting stirred up and both the 'fly and I were having a hard time keeping to the same location... I was amazed at the fluent movements that these guys swam with. One kept surfacing and diving and spinning around, but I lost it in the current after a minute or so. Wish I had my camera out with me then. Ah well. ;]

Agreed. :wink:

I just got an idea:

Set my camera up at an angle underwater in a tidepool, on video mode, and because Youtube has a 10min max video length, leave it there for 10 minutes. I bet we'd see things I never would notice just by looking down at the pool.

Whadd'ya think?

Sounds like a plan! Plus things are more likely to come out of hiding with you gone.

Just make sure that you don't get glare coming off the water surface.

Well this sucks.

Today was supposed to be 25 degrees C and full sun.

It was, up until about 1/2 an hour from my town. From there, the sky turned really grey and it got cold. The tide was way up with no access to the rocks so I couldn't get the video.

Let's hope tomorrow is better.
