    camera(s), the shots are beautiful, I'd like to know about the underwater ones.

    With a WHOLE lot of luck maybe I can make it next year.  It's been on my list for 3 summers now. 8^(  Hault too much camping stuff to take the train, so we'll make the haul from Seattle or Portland

    •  It's a very average Fuji waterproof camera (0+ / 0-)

      What really mattered in some of those shots was the amazing water quality.  Crystal clear, absolutely nothing in it.  The location was the outlet of Lake MacDonald at Glacier NP.

      Here's a study in contrast.  Same camera, nice day, just a little more depth, in the middle fork of the Flathead.  As you swim around with a mask it looks clear, it looks great.  But the river has just enough entrained material to fuzz out the image.

      Looked clear but not so much
