    Default Crystal Helictites in underwater caves of Abaco

    I just had a fun few days diving here on Abaco with cave diver Henry Hunt from Ireland. Henry had a small point and shoot underwater camera and I was impressed with the images from this tiny thing. It's cool to have a camera that you can drag 2200 feet back and just take a few quick snapshots. I've posted them in the international cave photo gallery, but here's the URLS. Enjoy

    Those are great. Too bad they're portrait, or I'd make one of them my wallpaper.
