Well, it’s been a rough and tumble few weeks, consisting mostly of drinking from the fire-hose of knowledge as I work towards completing my PLQ course for the army. While I haven’t been able to do any diving, diving I’ve done, and more specifically, photography I’ve done continues to get around! A while back I mentioned Cousteau Divers, in an article about getting involved in ocean sciences titled “Ocean Research“. Cousteau Divers is one of my favourite organizations, right next to REEF.org, when it comes to getting the average diver involved in conservation efforts.
Cousteau Divers has some great features for divers; it combines a social networking with picture sharing and has a logbook function as well. While it is still in its beta, it’s a great site that is keen to interact with its user base. while i was on my commercial diver course, I snapped a shot of Janolus fuscus , the Orange and White Tipped Nudibranch. This picture has been added to the Cousteau Collection! Check out the album (containing the original collection and best of Cousteau Divers) here on Facebook, or download it as a free App for your iPhone, iPod or iPod Touch!
As a diver and huge fan of Jacques-Yves Cousteau, this is a real high point for me, and a milestone for Cold Water Diver, where the picture was first published for the public to see! So, until next post; Good Luck, and Good Diving!
