Hello all,

This is my first topic, I am so proud ;-))

I just returned from a trip to southern Egypt, staying in 2 different eco-lodges. Great locations, very relaxed diving and very friendly staff.

Here are a few pics:

Nice pictures, Fred. The BW shot of the whole wreck with divers is really a great wreck shot. I am going to Marsa Shagra in a months time, looking forward to shooting some Red Sea stuff.

Very nice Fred. I too am a regular at Shargra and Lahami and your images are some of the finest I have seen. Lahami (and Ross!) is our favourite as Shagra is getting a little too busy these days. But CJ and I will have a week there this autumn to shoot the Longimanus at Elphinstone.

Hi Tim,

I agree that Ross is a very unique individual. Once you get to know him, he is so great to be around (above- or underwater). Good luck with the longimanus next Autumn.

Cheers,

Fred

Hello Bent,

Thank you for your comments, I truly hope that you will enjoy your time in Marsa Shagra as much as I did.

Cheers,
