balmorhea

Balmorhea is great state park, out 'near' Big Bend national park. Spring fed by the San Solomon Springs, 72-76F all year, huge, flowing at a rate of 22 to 28 million gallons per day and in the middle of the desert. Just what you need after a hot day. These shots were all taken with the Canon G10, using the underwater housing (WP-DC28). Everything worked, even though I was a bit apprehensive the first time getting into the water with the camera. Easy to use, almost all of the controls (apart from the rear dial) work.

Jealous of the underwater housing, love the images.

I just got decent images at the concert with my G10...discovering after it wasn't set to RAW. Virtually the whole point of owning the camera.

Thanks for the extra info on that, my Texas knowledge needs some expansion.
