Going underwater...

It was time to return to the island. Bob the Builder had created a brand new quay for Mörkö! There hadn't been a dock on the island for a long time (I never saw the previous one). Sometimes, it has been difficult to strand because Mörkö needs quit a lot water underneath. The new quay should help!

There it is, the new quay! There's also a new bright orange buoy... now I should learn how to use it - especially if the weather is windy. The quay needs some finishing - a handrail etc.

At 1 am. daylight is coming back again.

Creepy crawlers of the night...

A stone (I like the shadows and light playing on it's surface)

See the fish? Woohoo, got it!!! A small perch. Some people may think that it's nothing but I can assure it's not so easy to see fish in these waters. You can snorkel half an hour without seeing anything. And when you finally see something, it's gone before you have shot any photos!

I was focused on shooting some easy targets...

... when this beauty appeared!

Ide!

The last photo made me really happy! I spent maybe two hours underwater. It was possible because the weather has been really warm - the water was amazing 26 degrees of Celsius - not very common in Finland! Next weekend, I'll continue my underwater adventures if it's still possible...

That last picture is amazing! That fish really wanted his close up photo taken didn't he? The shadow pictures are great too.
Very nice dock too, does the end of it float or is it anchored to the bottom of the lake? I guess you can tell I don't know much about construction : /

The fish was really curious! It returned several times - I bet it hadn't seen anything similar before ;)
The dock is simply standing on the bottom.

Congratulations for the new quay! The last two photos made me smile - can't figure out who is more curious - you or the fish :)
