Red Sea diving June 2014

by on Jul.07, 2014, under Scuba, Underwater Photography

Its getting a bit predictable?….I only update the website when I have even more photos of fish to bore folks with!

So , not wanting to break the cycle here are some shots form our most recent trip to the Red Sea in June 2014. Diving with the brilliant team at cameldive.com once again. As always its a pleasure. Visited all the usual dive sites – Shark & Yolanda, Jackson reef, Gordon reef, Shark observatory etc etc. And you know what? I would go and do it all again next week, it just never gets old!

Maldives Diving 2013

by on Jun.15, 2013, under Scuba, Underwater Photography

70% of the planet is covered in water…approximately 1% of the population of the world Scuba dives. Of that 1% a few very lucky people get to dive in The Maldives. Sometimes life ain’t so bad.

Here are a few shots taken during dives in the South Male Atol , Maldives May-June 2013. Good to be diving with Dive Ocean again, based on Biyadhoo Island. It’s the start of the monsoon and the Indian Ocean is filling up nicely with plankton…great for the sea-life…not so great for taking pictures. Had some fantastic dives in some pretty challenging conditions including whipping down Cocoa Corner at 23 metres doing what felt like 20 knots. Definitely ‘strong current’ drift diving in my book.

Awesome is an overused term, but diving in the Maldives this year was very , very…awesome.

Sad to say that on one dive to Kandooma we came across a shark carcass tied to a concrete block dropped on to the top of the Thila. Clear evidence that illegal Shark fishing is still going on….depressing. Sharks (and Mantas and Whales) are worth so much more ALIVE!

Red Sea diving June 2012

by on Jul.27, 2012, under Underwater Photography

Underwater shots taken during dives in the Red Sea June 2012. This time diving with Ocean College Diving, who were pretty top notch. Finally got to dive Thistlegorm, but a combination of my crap photography skills, camera equipment, and visibility during the dive left me with only a handful of semi decent shots ..! Great dives though. Shark & Yolanda was ,as usual awesome as was Jackson reef and my new favourite dive site , the little dived Canyon at Marsa Brayka. Fantastic.

Manta Ray Rah Diggha , Maldives June 18 2010

by on Jul.01, 2010, under Underwater Video

Certainly an afternoon we wont forget. This Manta Ray was keen to take a look at us and play around for quite a while. This isn’t Scuba diving footage, we were simply snorkelling a shallow reef near Rah Dhigga Island. Once in a lifetime stuff…. None of the photo’s/video clips were taken with a zoom lens – The Manta was very close and very happy to be the star of the show!
