Photo’s By Michael Holm

Greetings all

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, Pemuteran, Bali

Ornate Ghost Pipefish, Very Colourful.

Mantis Shrimp waiting to pounce on unsuspecting photographer, Pemuteran Bali

A Mantis Shrimp awaiting some prey. Not to close with that camera Michael or he’ll have it.

Really nice Shrimp on a Feather star, Pemuteran, Bali

Love this one, the green shrimp on the feather star. Nice image.

Cuttlefish, Pemuteran, Bali

A Cuttlefish using sponge as camoflage.

Yet another Mantis Shrimp, Pemuteran, Bali
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.

Lee, phyllis & Gary’s, Secret Bay Memories

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.

Lee The - a self portrait

First a Self Portrait of the Photographer himself Mr Lee resplendent with his HydroOptics mask. Very dashing Mr Lee.

Gobby on a starfish, secret bay, Bali

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, secret bay, Bali

Yellow frogfish striking a dramatic pose.

Folded NudiBranch, secret bay, Bali

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.

Rough landing, Cuttlefish, secret bay, Bali

This Cuttlefish seems to have crash-landed in the sand, must have mucked up his landing.

Eye eye Mr Cuttlefish, secret bay, Bali

Aye Eye Mr Lee!

Cool Catfish, secret bay, Bali
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.
