    First attempt at underwater photography!

    A couple days ago my friend picked up an underwater dispoable camera to try out in the lake.

    Under water photography is tough!

    Here are some of the ones that came out alright: (most taken and edited by Fadil, a few by me)


    A couple big Talapia!


    This place we dubbed "Root city" back in the day for reasons not really seen in the photo.


    A couple Large Mouth Bass hanging out at Root City, keeping an eye on the Brim and Talapia!


    A big Peacock bass lurking in the depths!


    This big peacock was hanging around the car at the bottom of the lake! I managed to snap this photo right before he bolted.


    A school of brim in the shallows.


    A couple of baby large mouths and a brim doin' their thing!

    Not too bad for some amateurs and a $10 disposable.

    My friend picked up a reusable cam afterwards, hopefully that one will have a little better quality!

    Hope you enjoyed the underwater lake tour!

    Fantastic!!!! We bought a water housing for our digital. I agree, that's pretty good for a disposible! Nice shots of the Talapias.

    I've always loved underwater pictures, even if only from a disposable camera. Very nice. There is true beauty in the depths of the sea.

    Nice photos but Talapia and Peacock bass are not native to the U.S. Where did you take these pics. I am guessing Florida.

    Yep, right in my backyard.

    Its an artificial lake though. It used to be a rock quarry or a place to dump appliances or something like that. You'd never know by looking at it though! The water is crystal clear(except recently due to the water rising about 4 and a half feet from it raining everyday for 3 weeks) and aquatic life is abundant!

    I have seen peacock bass in a canal down here in Miami so it has been introduced to more natural areas.

    Has all that rain been local or is the rest of the state also getting some help with the drought? I was in Sebring a few weeks ago and the lake was way down.
