Beautiful pictures - strange looking hairy sea horse. I enjoyed your other galleries, too.

Hey Bent,
Thanks for sharing these. It really helps those of us who have been to Bonaire to see what is possible there. All outstanding but the Hooker shot is absolutely world class IMHO.

Cheers,
Steve

Hi Bent, that is a great shot of the Hilma Hooker, I'll have to try that shot next time I'm in Bonaire.

Great images. Thanks for sharing them. Like everyone else it seems, I REALLY like the Hilma Hooker shot. I'll try to reproduce it (as best I can) when I go there this January.

Thanks a lot for your comments. Bonaire beats most other places when it comes to the organisation of the diving, it is so nice to just grab your tanks and decide the days diving all on the basis of ones own wishes! No time limit, no quick swimming group and no dive master enquiring on the abscence of a dive buddy in your vicinity. The lack of supervision could of course lead to problems with reef damage, but surprisingly enough, diver behaviour around the reef seemed at least as good as on more "supervised" dive locations.

I like the moray - interesting lighting and good focus on the eye.
