Great pictures! What type of camera did you use?

That was using a Fuji Z33WP. a small waterproof camera, that sadly, died this summer. I have had it a long time and it did great photos and video in water up to 10 feet deep. Fuji has a new line of these cameras out, some can go 30 to 80+ feet deep.

Thanks for the information! I will have to look into those cameras.

I saw a new one at Costco last week for $199+HST. waterproof to 85 feet, also shock resistant fro drops up to 5 feet, and cold resistant as well. they lack some features, but overall they are great cameras for beaches, cold ocean, and winter walks
