The Free Divers Back In Town!

It is that time of year again, when some of the members of AIDA Canada and CASM come up to Morrison’s Quarry, for their free diving adventures under the ice.

This would be our third time watching our free diving friends under the ice, and the second time I had been invited to take some pictures of them. It is a pleasure to watch their mesmerizing grace under the water.

There were six of us in the water with them. I had my stills camera, and Steve had the video camera.

Harold and Anne were the special guest stars of the day, and came diving with us too…

I let Kevin take a stab at my camera, and he snapped a picture of me…

Then he donated his reg to the camera…

Steve took video of the day’s events…

Steve’s video…

Steve also brought in our red-shrouded scooter, that I blew up last year, to see if all of the hard work to fix it would pay off. It seems the fix worked!

Kevin found the other one, and had a joy ride.. Nice find…

After approximately 40 minutes in the water, I started to chill a bit, since we weren’t moving around much, and I had a leak in my drysuit. Kevin grabbed the reel and brought us back in.

What a beautiful day for a dive!!!

Today, there were more people in the water, and many more cameras. I think we all did a pretty good job of working around each other, and we all had alot of fun.

Posing for the camera… The other camera…

Getting the shot…

Philippe, having some fun…

We had yet another incredible day of watching our free diving friends dance under the ice. Even though the ice was almost non-existent at this time.

A great big thank you to Francois, and all of the members of CASM and AIDA Canada, for making two days of diving goodness memorable ones!
