Flounder at Alki Cove 2

Last Tuesday my dive buddy and I headed to Alki Cove 2 in West Seattle to search for the Giant Pacific Octopus that lives under the Honey Bear and to try and prepare for our upcoming trip to Key Largo, FL.  The conditions were not optimal, low visibility and a lot of chop, but they were good enough to dive.  We geared up, began the rather long surface swim to the buoy, and descended.  After 55 minutes of searching for this Octopus and other assorted creatures I stumbled upon this flounder.  It was a good opportunity to use my new dive light along with my GoPro to see if I could get any decent video.  The light I was using was the Long Burn version of the original Dusty light (http://www.dustys-lights.com/).  It is rather powerful and can wash out the video you are shooting if you aren’t careful.  I hope to do a review of the light in an upcoming post but until then enjoy the video and happy diving!
