Hello,

I have just returned from a lovely trip to Indonesia. We boarded our boat on Bali then headed to Komodo, diving various spots on the way to and fro. The diving was spectacular, of course, and we saw many of the sought-after species that are on pretty much everyone's bucket list. I thought I'd post a few photos, or if you'd like to view the entire gallery you can see it here: http://www.flickr.co...157627203686898

Congrats Gina, looks like you sure filled up your wish list with nice images. I just did the slideshow on Flickr and really enjoyed it.

How did you like the boat?

Cheers,
Steve

Wonderful images! I'm doing a similar trip on Siren in a couple of months: I'm even more excited after seeing your collection! Thank-you for sharing it.

Nice photos! Love the pygmy and the collection of nudis.

And GROSS on the cockroaches. Poor sanitary conditions are simply unacceptable.

Gorgeous photos, especially the 'coral detail'.

i can't imagine being on a boat like that. you should probably publish a report on 'undercurrent'.

That was at Seraya Secrets, off Bali. We got lucky as we were on our way back to port, and that was the last dive of the trip!
