Really nice Alex! Please help me understand how you have the port setup. What extension are you using if any?

 

Glad you guys had a productive trip. How did you find the environment on the beach and getting to the resort/boat?

 

Cheers,

Steve

Beautiful shots.

 

Were all the shots taken with the teleconverter?

All the wide angle ones were, yes. I use the Zen 100mm dome for the 10-17 Tokina (DP-100-NT) and an extension ring 20 (plus the zoom gear for the Tokina and teleconverter.

 

I was running a trip at Shark's Bay through Oonas Divers, 3 days mini-safari liveaboard to Abu Nuhas and Thisltegorm and then 4 days land based to Ras Mohammed and Tiran Straights.

Great shots Alex. Amazing light.

Could you tell me how is the situation in Sharm right now? Im leaving in a couple of weeks to Shark bay (umbi village) and would like to know how is the diving now :-), crowdy?

Wonderful shots. I love the blues in all the pics... it's really nice to see those blues in the macro shots too. Love the lionfish and blennies too.

Nice shots Alex. Love the lion fish yawning. It was great to dive with you, even if you do hog all the subjects. lol

Nice work Alex - that is a really nice set. I like them all - the moray caught my eye. I just tried the Bare minidome/1.4x teleconverter/10-17 Tokina for the first time on my Komodo trip - In general, I didn't get get close enough when I reviewed pictures after the dive (even though it felt like I was really close while shooting). Looks like you have it figured out.

 

The Fix light you brought me from Taiwan when we went to Raja Ampat finally gave up this last trip - so an excuse to upgrade I guess!!
