Hello,

Here is a short video I just finished from Northern Wrecks & Reefs, Brothers and Elphinstone.

Here is the link (kept showing error after embedding?)

As always all comments and critiques are welcome and appreciated.

Cheers,

Thanks Simon.

Sony XR500-L&M-Fathom 90-Sunray 1200

Grey reefs were at "Little Brother"

The only sharks I saw in 2 trips to the same area in May and Dec.

Got really unlucky at "Big Brother". I had a very very slow buddy preparing for dives and the one time that I asked him to be ready early so we could be first to the one plateau where Threshers are often seen we got skunked. The rest of the group stayed with one in the exact spot shortly after us for about 10 minutes. It was coming back and forth and also very close from what I understand grrrr. Luck of the draw I guess. No Longimanus either which would have made me a very very happy boy.

Unfortunately weather stopped us from making it to Daedalus too.

Cheers,

Kelly

Awesome, really nice video. Is that a standard trip to Egypt or were you lucky to see a lot of it? Barracuda, sharks, cuttlefish, napoleon wrasse etc etc it looked like something from Indonesia!!

Thanks for all of the kind remarks!

This was from 2 trips in the Red Sea (12 days of diving). Both trips had their differences as they were opposite times of the year with different water temps. The Red Sea is quite diverse hosting wrecks, walls and reefs but IMHO I don't think its quite at the Indo level. Macro was almost none existent except for a few crustaceans, couple of nudis and some pipe fish. However it does have some nice wide angle and can have some amazing vis. I wouldn't hesitate to go back. Maybe a Sudan safari next time though.


Great job Kelly. Glad to see your keeping active.


Thanks Peter. I was very active last year and this year started with Similans and Lembeh. The editing is starting to pile up.


Nice video. I wonder how that moray broke its tooth.


Thanks Nick, not too sure about the tooth, they can be pretty reckless hunters though.
