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.
The Sea Rovers Brethren’s ranks continue to swell with the addition of Lee, Phyllis and Gary our American affiliates.
Below are just a small taste of some of the many, many underwater photograph that Lee took during their time here.
This time I chose some of his Secret Bay photo’s as I liked them the best.
First a Self Portrait of the Photographer himself Mr Lee resplendent with his HydroOptics mask. Very dashing Mr Lee.
Nice little Gobby takes a ride on a passing starfish. Probably be faster to swim, but hey, who’s in a hurry. This is Bali after all.
Yellow frogfish striking a dramatic pose.
Often seen at Secret Bay and nicely photoed by Mr Lee. A folded nudibranch.
Amazing what you can accomplish with origami and some sea lettuce.
This Cuttlefish seems to have crash-landed in the sand, must have mucked up his landing.
Aye Eye Mr Lee!
Cool Catfish finish off this collection of interesting images from Lee. We look forward to seeing many more on your next trip out.
By the way Phyllis, the Saga of the Skolian Empire books that you left here are brilliant, hence its taken me so long to get round to going through the hundreds of photos you left to narrow down to these.
