Managed two dives on the Busselton Jetty, Busselton, Western Australia and this was my first dives there after the extensive rebuild it underwent over the last couple of years.   Prior to the rebuild it was an iconic dive site in south western Australia.   Unfortunately alot of the growth was destroyed during the rebuild and a lot of the old growth corals, sponges etc are gone; however, new growth is appearing on the new pylons so hopefully the Jetty will return to it's gloriuos past.

 

All images were taken with the Oly OMD EM-5 in a Nauticam Housing & Macro 65 Port with custom gearing for zooming and for the macro shots a +3 macro wet lens was used with the lens at 50mm.
