Filming Swans underwater and an idea for filming Dippers

I had planned on this trip to film the Swans underwater so I had my underwater housing ready to go and a bag of oats which should sink and allow me to film them filter feeding on he bottom of the pool.

The clarity of the water was perfect for underwater filming

Footage coming soon and while filming underwater I had an idea for filming another semi aquatic bird.

I will explain more in a future blog how I intend to film/photograph a Dipper underwater.

Thanks for reading



  1. That`s really cool how you & your brother filmed underwater! My favorite photo,tho,is the first one,I just love it,thanks for sharing,phyllis

  2. Thank you, hopefully more very soon.

  3. Nice shots. Video housings are the answer to the biggest hurdle in underwater shooting. Their main purpose is to protect your camera from various threats that may hinder you from getting the most of your underwater shots.
