The colors of the night here in Australia... I used multiple strobes to lit the sandy bottom and create a day-light illusion...squids were very pleased with it...

"Strobe malfunction"... who said that when your strobes go off-sync is always a bad thing? do to leakage in one of the strobes battery, one of the strobe was missfiring or firing like a strobo light and I think this caused the different tones

The colors of the night in Australia... I used multiple strobes to give the illusion to dive with squids during the day (night dive) squids were happily swimming very close...
