Really nice set, but the Blue spot is a standout IMHO

The Anti Aircraft gun of the Thislgorm with the diver is great.
I also browsed your pbase gallery and you have lovely shots of the Red Sea.

It was overall pretty ok with the crowds, out of 23 dives just this one dive and one on Thistlegorm that was really crowded. But I would guess that it could be really crazy when Sharm is full. After all, most of the boats seemed to be in the harbor during our stay.

I like the Blue Spotted Ray too. I like the Thistlegorm shot too. You were lucky to get a minimal current in order to be able to take that shot.
