Hi guys,

I havent posted any images here for a long while now. I had a trip to Bali last year, mainly diving, and after a hard drive crash and recovery, have gotten around to putting all the images together. Hope you enjoy!

We were staying and diving with Scuba Seraya in Tulamben, and I would highly recommend them. Beautiful little resort right on the beach. Good food and the dive guides were amazing. Every day I'd tell them what I wanted to see, and they'd find it for me! A couple of minutes boat ride to most dive sites, or shore diving at Seraya Secrets, which made for some pleasent afternoon dives.

After that we spent a couple of days staying on Nusa Lembongan, moreso to relax in the sun than to dive. I did do one morning of diving though at Nusa Penida. Mantas at Manta Point, anthough no Mola Mola at Crystal Bay. Still, CB has some amazing reef, and the biggest frog fish I've ever seen!

More photos are up in my Bali Gallery.

Any feedback welcome!

Thanks,
Ryan.

Nice collection Ryan.

When you heading back this way mate??? I found a pair of Harlequin Shrimp in Hugo's the other day.

Btw I enjoyed Tulamben last year that I booked again for later in the in the year. Just have to remember how to use those Macro lenses again ;-)

Hey Mark,

I'll be passing through next month, if I get time I'll stop in for a dive. Otherwise we'll be down there for the shootout. Keep an eye on those Harlequin. I'm pretty sure the guides at Seraya must feed theirs (with sea stars) so the shrimp don't actually move around.

When're you going back to Bali? Haven't decided what we're going to do this year.

Beautiful Ryan. Really glad you were able to save the hard drive. Do you know what caused the failure?

Cheers,
Steve

I'm in awe of your macro images. Perhaps I'll give up...

... speaking of which, I lost two hard drives a couple of years ago through power fluctuations that blew their adaptors and fried the motors. I don't know if that's relevant: the discs were dismounted for data recovery. I've gone solid-state in the last year.

Hey Tim,
What happens to the solid state drives when hit with power flucuations? Guessing they are protected?

Cheers,
Steve

Lembeh's high on my list of places to go now after enjoying the muck diving in Bali so much. And the best bit is my partner even enjoyed it too ;)

For those that've been to both, how much better is the much diving in Lembeh over Bali?

Fabulouse images Ryan

Lembeh has everything, Secret bay diving is limited to high tides and travelling from your base, but has lots to see, Seraya is awesome, especially if you are staying at Seraya Scuba resort just dive when you want

For me personally its gotta be Lembeh for the variety of sites and critters.

There's no dignity in diving. Especially as you get older.

Hi Ryan.

I am taking a fortnight off at the start of April from my other job and doing alot of diving hopefully with the D7000. So let me know when your passing through.

I am going back over to Bali and staying mainly at tulamben at the start of December.

Excellent photos Ryan. :P

I'm staying at Scuba Seraya in October, so your photos have whetted my appetite.

Thanks for sharing,
