VIDEO: New 360-degree view of ‘Alki Junkyard’

New from “Diver Laura” James – a 360-degree view of what divers know as the “Alki Junkyard,” off the west end of public Alki shoreline (64th SW).

Laura says, “This was shot with ambient light in the 50’ range; the only lights were on my dive buddy Lamont’s camera. So you can see it’s really quite bright down there during the day (lots of ambient light unless a really heavy plankton bloom), and the diver lights primarily serve to restore the colors (red goes away first, due to the way water absorbs light).”

If you haven’t viewed this type of video before – provided it’s compatible with your browser, you should be able to click “play” and then click the video, using your cursor to “drag” it around, to see above, below, in front, behind … 360 degrees.

P.S. If you follow Diver Laura on Twitter/Periscope, you just might catch her “live” underwater – she’s done a few tests in the past few days.

    This is so awesome! To know this is at the end of my street–wow!   I’m kind of awestruck. It gives me so much more appreciation of this natural beauty.

    Wow.  This is Awesome in the most intense form of the word.  I’m going to have to watch it 3 or 4 more times to get the full 360 effect.  Thank you Diver Laura!

    Good to see the return of at least one Starfish…… 

Sorry, comment time is over.
