Watch What Happens When An Amateur Photographer Drops His Camera In A Lake (VIDEO)

Josh Reeves just took a camera, a two liter water bottle and a little ingenuity to create one National Geographic-esque video.

After putting his Pansonic TZ30 in a two liter bottle, Reeves slowly dropped it underwater and into a lake. Just beneath the surface was a mesmerizing group of smooth newts swimming and feeding.

Reeves little experiment proves that with a little creativity, even an amateur can capture the magic of nature on film.
