Just a few pictures from a recent trip to Ixtapa, Mexico. The diving wasn't the greatest, but I'll take warm water any day. I flooded my camera on the last trip so these were taken with my wife's camera that I wasn't that used to.

Below is a cool commensal crab (not sure on species) that hang out with the long spine urchins. They look like a pile of algae.

Cool pics!! Love the sunset shot. Can you see the "green flash" down there or is that more of a Hawaii thing (I might add I've never seen it so I dunno if it's a real thing or not..)?

Yes, the dreaded "green flash"...lol. It was there for sure. It would appear based on the colour of the sun and the angles that I was shooting. It must be a refraction thing as the light would go through the lens and create it. I just had to play with the angle I was shooting to ensure that the camera was pointed directly at the sun so it wouldn't appear.
