Michael and his wife Karin have been here the last week, diving and relaxing. Yesterday me and Michael sat down in front of the office computer and narrowed down 800+ photo’s to some 169 usable. Michael then had the task of wittling down the photo’s some more till we had 8 to chose from. Of which the final 5 were photoshop’d and put up here for all to see.
Ornate Ghost Pipefish, Very Colourful.
A Mantis Shrimp awaiting some prey. Not to close with that camera Michael or he’ll have it.
Love this one, the green shrimp on the feather star. Nice image.
A Cuttlefish using sponge as camoflage.
Another more colourful Mantis shrimp, so many varieties to photograph. And Up here in still sunny NW Bali, despite the best efforts of the rainy season, we have so many to find.
Thanks Michael for sharing and I look forward to perhaps getting out diving with you an Karin next year.

Engine problems with the Vicious Guppy brought a full contingent of professionals to Sea Rovers. First we complain to the dealer, then the dealer to the distributor, then the distributor to the regional offices. Then with enough complaints everybody comes to visit and help sort out the problem.

The Commodore looking slightly contemplative as the engines are put through their paces with the diagnostic software.
She may be a might poorly but she’ll survive to run many more dive trips to come. And though she be fibreglass, she has the mighty oaken heart of pirate ships of yore. Garr! Shiver me fibre!
