While at Poolburn on Sunday we spent a bit of time skating on an area thick hard clear ice. Was like skating on a mirror with the ice so shiny it looked wet. While we marveled at the reflections the idea popped up - 'what it would look like from under the ice?' So after 15mins minutes of feverish innovation, adaptation and sillyness we came up with an ad-hoc method to get a camera under the ice. The water depth was around 10m and we were over a km from our base so we used what we had on us. This is a the result and we are reasonably pleased with it - given it was completely unplanned and made up on the spot.
Maybe next time if we plan........
No animals or cameras were harmed in this experiment... though one camera leaked a little!
(Note: the camera date stamp is incorrect - recorded 4th July 2010 and thanks to Ryan for allowing us to use - or maybe miss-use his camera!)
