2001, 2010, 2012??

In our lifetime mankind has ventured into space and many great motion pictures have graced the silver screen trying to give us land dwellers a perspective as to what it might be like. One that comes to mind as being the leader of its time and still relevant today is 2001: a space odyssey

For those of you who have had the opportunity to venture beneath the waters of our planet can attest to the alien like environment that exists in its space. During my years of scuba diving I always got a sense of being in a space that made me feel somewhat like a astronaut depending on my equipment and training for survival. I only wish that the GoPro technology existed back then as the only images that I have are stored within my personal memory banks.

This past weekend while on the SISKA Relaxed Paddle I took a number of video clips and last night I found one with images that reminded me of 2001 and my days under the surface. Although the visibility under water wasn't the greatest I was still amazed at what I saw on the clip and just had to have a little editing fun with it.

I can see that my GoPro Hero 2 is going to get a lot of use in the future while we explore the space we ride on. :-)

Happy Paddling


  1. Now that is VERY cool, Mark. The technology (and the price, considering the capabilities) is really quite unbelievable - a marvellous way to "log" adventures. Duncan.

    1. Hi Duncan, I think this little camera is going to capture a lot of images and video that will surprise me. This weekend I am hoping to capture a smiling seal when I put the camera under water on a pole. Now..... that would be cool!
