Here are a few images from my recent trip to Fakarava, French Polynesia.
Some of the best dives I have ever done, especially at the south pass of Fakarava where you can see hundreds of sharks hovering over the wall.
You can see the rest on my blog.



Subal ND300, Nikon D300 and lots of water to photograph.

Nice shots. Fakarava is my favorite dive spot so far -- hundreds of sharks and unbelievably healthy reefs. I'm almost hesitant to tell people about it for fear it will become overdived.....

I used to work there from 02-04 and South Pass was my favourite spot then, glad to see that 10 years later the population is still there!

Great work
