I am in Singapore waiting for my flight tomorrow morning onwards to Manado for the Wetpixel Lembeh Workshop. Group leader and workshop instructor Alex Mustard is there already and comments:
And after the welcome to the Resort, the underwater welcome as only Lembeh Strait can do. I got here just in time to night dive, so after 1 dive: 5 frogfish (inc. 2 hairy), stargazer, bobbit worm, coral mimicking nudis (Phyllodesmium rudman/jacobsen and Marionia sp.) loads of mating nudis, crabs and shrimps everywhere, pygmy squid etc etc. It promises to be a very productive stay!
I spent yesterday evening hanging out with David Cheung of Scubacam after picking up some last minute gear that has been provided for testing on the trip:

We plan to provide regular updates on this thread, and to encourage the workshop participants to do the same. Please check back often as the trip progresses!
