Last Friday a small group of friends and I went for a road trip down to South West Rocks and enjoy some of the best diving on the East Coast of Australia.

We stayed and dived with Peter and Kevin Hitchins from South West Rocks Dive Centre (http://www.southwestrocksdive.com.au/) and their crew. As always we were looked after by the lads and their professional staff.

Here are some of the collection of GNS shots from the first dive at Fish Rock. Basically I had to come up as I ran my strobe batteries dead and was getting close to deco with 33% Nitrox mix. Any I was happy with the results.

Great shots. Looks like you had some awsome vis. Its a shame about the fish hooks and line attached to the sharks though. All to common at a critical habitat site on the East Coast of NSW unfortunatley.

I like this sequence, plus I am playing with the new settings for uploading off flickr.
