It seemed like it was taking a bit longer than usual to reach the big arrow leading to the exit.
    I know you are fairly new, so this may not have been something you have seen

    There has been a lot of discussion about this accident,but the question has come up, if the instructor/guide was focused on their team mate, would they have survived? Other things about this dive don't add up too,but one thing to consider, if someone is focusing on a piece of equipment, then their thought process is distracted from the team and situation that is going on.

    If you are diving with a photographer you really need to watch out for them. It is easy for them to get distracted and miss a navigational decision. I have been told Wes hired a safety diver just for this on his photo shoots.

    I once had a photographer drag a team of three of us approx 400? in the wrong direction, and away from our scooters.
    Fortunately we were only 330? deep and 3000-4000? into the cave.
    Had it been a serious dive, we could have been in trouble. We did manage some pretty cool pics that day.

    We heard about this at the CDS Winter Workshop at Hart earlier this year. Classic stuff, and yes, beautiful images!
