Graduation party

Wednesday, August 25th, 2010

I had a small informal graduation party last weekend. Not that much partying though, most of the weekend was actually spent building a new pier for our sauna. I had bought a Canon EOS 550D camera few days beforehand, and we took over 1400 photos during the weekend. Lots of photos from the party and pier construction can be found in the gallery.

Dive in Karinsalmi

Friday, August 13th, 2010

Yesterday we were diving in Karinsalmi, Pulkkilanharju in lake Päijänne. Lots of junk in the bottom, including a sunken boat and an alien. This was my first time using Osmo’s camera underwater and the current was pretty strong too in the bottom, so the video ended up little jerky. Some photos from the dive in the gallery.

Dive in Tornionsalmi around Virtosaari

Thursday, August 5th, 2010

Last tuesday we were diving in Tornionsalmi and Osmo had his camera with him for a change. Short video from the dive is available on Youtube and some photos can be found in the gallery. The dive itself wasn’t particularly interested, just lots of fish and plant life.

Tornionsalmi in Ruotsalainen, Finland
75 minutes, max depth 13.1 m, water 19°C
Buddies: Osmo Liipola

Lähtö laivalaiturilta, pintauintia Virtosaaren itälaitaan, josta lähdettiin sukeltamaan Virtosaaren takaa ympäri. Seurailtiin saaren rantoja melko matalassa, ylös tultiin saaren länsikulmassa. Takaisin laivalaiturille virran avustamana. Matkalla paljon pikkukaloja parvina ja simpukoita. Minä vedin ja Osmo kuvasi. Matkalla melkein törmäsin verkkoon, joka sitten ylitettiin. Suurin osa matkasta matalassa (2-5 m), vesi melko sameaa.
