[UW Photo A084] Blue Grouper


This is the same friendly Blue Grouper in the Shelly Beach. Its wonderful to see it again after a couple of weeks. This time I was equipped with a wide angel lens so managed to capture the full image. Water clarity is not that great. This fish swam with me for a little while without any hesitation.

When water is not clear (poor visibility) it is very hard to go for a wide angle, but macros. This macro was shoot under poor visibility, yet macro image has come without any issue.

I met this friendly Blue Grouper in my casual weekend dive in Shelly Beach, Sydney. It followed me for a while during my dive.

[UW Photo A068] A long-waited shot (Seahorse)



This is a much waited-shot. My mission this summer was to shoot seahorses and it was amazing to find one in last minute. I saw one few years ago in this same location (Chowder Bay, Sydney), but I didn’t have a camera at that moment.

Actually, it’s autumn for me in Sydney, NSW. Within weeks, it will be winter and diving is merely impossible for a person like me. Secret in Tasman see is autumn could give you better conditions than summer. Even the water temperature is much better in autumn.

This is one of the most venomous fishes found in the world. Usually, injecting of venom occur through their needle like dorsal fins if accidently step on it. Its quite possible, since its camouflage body is very hard to identify by someone walk in the coast or a casual swimmer. This strong venom is produced in a gland located in the base of the dorsal fins. Anyway, this fish doesn't attack you.

Aboriginal people in the northern parts of Australia had known how to cure this venom and also they have had the knowledge how to prepare this fish as a food, carefully avoiding the venom.

I captured this image in Steve’s Bommie  of Ribbon Reef 3 of northern Great Barrier Reef. This site has been named to commemorate enthusiastic diver Steve who said to have died in a motorcycle accident (there are different other stories also). Still his name appears in a plaque beneath 25m below, which were placed by his friends. Anyway, Steve’s Bommie is one of the best dive sites in Great Barrier Reef.

[UW Photo A057] Swell Patterns


There are advantages if the sea is calm… strong waves or swell on the surface not only challenges your entry to the water and exit, but make poor natural light bottom down the water. Some creative photographers do miracles with patterns of water swell and waves. This is my humble attempt of capturing such a pattern with a fish eye lens.
