What a great picture! Is that an *ist DL2 in a waterproof housing or were you in a glass-bottomed boat? The colours are really good.

@David

Yes, I put the DL2 in a self-adapted underwater housing (old analogue camera and not suited for DSLR)

You certainly made it work! Very good definition and colours. What lens is it?

... itīs the standard kit lens 18-55 (others wonīt fit the port of the housing, especially no affordable wide-angle-zooms)
