    If you're going to try an underwater shot, one tip is to hold the camera upside down. It's much easier to use the shutter release that way and you can rotate the picture later.

    Great idea. I found that setting your camera's flash to On instead of Auto also makes a huge difference. The flash makes the colors and iridescence of the fish much more intense.

    I was going to stop and fish in my favorite place, but we have had snow the last two nights and I drive a two wheeled drive pick-me-up. I don't drive into areas with more than three inches of snow. I know my limitations.

    Being a big proponent of making the most of things, I put my iPhone in a zip-lok snack bag. Voila, dustproof, waterproof, phone/camera...:cool:

    My cell phone is just for talking. Those high tech phones are smarter than I am. Gave back the one I tried to use.

    Yup, phones are for making phone calls. Cameras are for taking photos.
