Some Fiji pics from the Rainbow Reef area

01 February 2016 - 05:42 AM

Just finished 12 days of diving while staying at Sau Bay in Fiji, diving the Somosomo Straits. The diving was wonderful, and here are a few photos from the trip.

some photos from Scuba Seraya diving in Bali

29 October 2015 - 04:02 AM

Hello all. I recently returned from a my first diving trip off of Bali. My wife and I stayed at the Scuba Seraya resort, near Tulamben. I used a Nikon D7000 in a Nauticam housing, with dual Inon Z240 strobes. Most of the photography was macro, and I used a Nikkor 85mm lens for those. All of the wide angle shots were taken with a Tokina 10-17mm zoom. Here are some of the shots.

wrasse spotted in Bali

26 October 2015 - 12:52 AM

I saw this critter in Bali, depth probably about 15m (50 ft), in a black volcanic rubble area. The shape of it looks identical to a peacock wrasse I have seen previously in other locales, but the color is completely different. I wonder if it is a different kind of critter, or maybe a juvenile phase. Help, please, and thanks in advance.

Some pics from Ambon and South Komodo

14 February 2015 - 11:30 AM

I went on an Indonesia trip with two parts. First, we stayed for 6 nights with Maluku Divers in Ambon for some muck diving. Then we went on to the Seven Seas liveaboard for a South Komodo itinerary. We enjoyed both parts of the trip very much, although I was disappointed with poor visibility for the first half of the Komodo portion of the trip. Anyway, here are a few highlights from the trip.

 

First, here are few from the Ambon portion of the trip.
