Great White Shark, at 500 feet.
John Victor Cooper

Great White Shark, at 500 feet.

500 ft below sea level.

Taken off the coast of South Africa.
The lights are reflections from the depth guage.
Actually the Liquivision F1 depth guage read 487 feet.
Time spent here is very precious, the Heliox runs out very fast.

Sea Max DPC-7000

other sizes: small medium large

Interesting. I thought he got into the Christmas lights again. They love those.

Nice work.
I was always warned not to even try a shot like this because the Heliox runs out too fast.
Oh, my mistake. I see you've already mentioned that. Carry on.

John, I trust you, but you need to upgrade from the Liquivision F1---it's only accurate to plus or minus 13 British leagues. The F2 model is much better: good to plus or minus 3 British leagues. The F2 puts this shark at a depth equal to the BS factor I detect.

John, I hope you realise how difficult it is to take a photo 500 foot down in a cold sea.
There wont be to many of these pictures, I can assure you of that.

All I see is 3D plankton.

I stared at this image for 15 minutes and finally succeeded in getting the full 3D effect by crossing my eyes and bringing my forefinger slowly forward to touch my nose. Superb, leaps right out once you get the hang of it.
