Remember how I said that the water was clear? Well, I meant it. This photo was taken from about eight feet underwater looking up through the clear water, through the fish, and nicely focusing on the redwoods in the background.
Obviously, I was using my underwater camera housing for this one too. The Eel River was a great place to shoot underwater because of the clarity of the water. It's really hard to shoot when the water's even a little silty. Not only is your visibility is limited, but there's much less light available and if you try to use the flash, all you'll do is light up the silt. I did not use a flash on this picture. I didn't need to, the sun was right there!
