Bowser, the Moray Eel: Published

Published: Hidden Oahu: Including Waikiki, Honolulu, and Pearl Harbor (Hidden Travel) ; page XV top

 

Color C-41 negative barrel scan from ~1996. Shot taken with a Sea & Sea 35mm UW camera. Here's a shot of the gear I used. This is Bowser...Bowser lived in a sunken ship's anchor assist located in the bow of the ship. The ship sunk upright off the west coast of Oahu, Mahi Shipwreck and rested at 100ft. It was my only boat dive while in Hawaii. The shallow dive just before this dive I captured a green sea turtle (Tripod). I found out after coming back to the dive shop sponsoring the boat dive to give this photo to them that someone had speared and killed Bowser with a Hawaiian Sling spear...what a shame!

Shot with a 20mm wide-angle conversion lens at close-focus.
