I'm chilling in Changi on my way back to England.

I'll eventually process my pictures, but I wanted to thank Shannon Conway and Graham Abbot (diving4images) for a great workshop in Tulamben. I have never seen so many ghost pipefishes...

... or Nauticam housings!

Graham is a hard act to follow, but Megumi Kaneko was up to the task at Mimpi Menjangan.

I think that I'm coming to grips with the D800:

This is more than can be said for my frustrations at the (by all accounts continuous) Denpasar gridlock that left me in fear of missing my flight this afternoon!

Hi Tim,

Was on this workshop in May 2010 , with Graham and Shannon- I really enjoyed it.

Thanks for bringing back the memory today :-)
Looking forward to seeing some more.

There's a little wall east of Suraya, but that's Menjangan, as Drew noted.
