It was a great trip, thanks in large part to Wetpixel and our two group leaders!

Sorry I'm late in getting some things posted, but here are a few from the past 4 days!

 

I used a Canon 8-15mm circular fisheye for this.  Luke (my dive buddy) thinks it is symbolic (of the world, seas, sky, sun, human and animal...).  I just thought it would be interesting to try.

I guess it's appropriate that I get a grinning whale shark shot...

Inspired by Adam's selfie, I did my own version!

The first or second morning, one of the crew taking a photo of a whale shark.

And last - for now - this is how you photobomb a whale shark!

Outstanding!  :good:  The more of Indonesia's uw treasures that can be protected, the better! 

 

Unfortunately, enforcing such a ban is the critical issue, and I'm less than confident that patrolling resources will be close to adequated.  :(
