Last dive...Success for the shot I wanted

Lost internet on the last days and got hit with bali belly 2 hours after my last dive (thankfully). The pressure was on. I still didnt have the shots I was looking for but thanks to Emo and a super early start at Crystal Bay it all fell into place ...

Farewell Festival

On this cold and wet night, Perth Scuba chucked some snags on the barbie and beers in the esky as they hosted the official closing of the WA UF11 fringe events.  

What an awesome 10 days - 7 talks, 2 photo courses, plenty of dives, camera try-outs, an exhibition, a local ...

Sorting and choosing

Wow, the Festival has come and gone and what a great 10 days it was.  Loads of presentations hosted by WAUPS and Perth Scuba and we all managed a few dives in the less than ideal conditions.

Now it's time to sort through the images and choose those worth ...

Whales and white coral

Today I headed to Rottnest Island with my hubby and two photographer mates.  We departed a little later to take advantage of the dropping winds and the ride over was fairly smooth. 

Our first stop was north of the island where we also spotted whales breaching.  Such a wonderful sight ...

A Great week in Borneo

Well the time has come to pack up the camera, regs and the travel wings (yes no wetsuit for obvious reasons!!). Sipadan, despite the average visibility has provided some nice wide angle opportunities as well as macro from Mabul and Si Amil. We have been able to see all the ...

Underwater Festival Road Trip Day 10

Last Port of Call

the crew at Port Douglas

We couldn’t have asked for more beautiful surrounds for our the final day of our road trip than Port Douglas.


After a Top Gear drive along the coastal road to Port Douglas, the crew checked in with Quicksilver for our three-dive day trip on the ...

Information in

What I love about the WA fringe event is that it's not all about diving and taking photos.  There are opportunities for people to learn, to have useful information go in, which hopefully stays in, to help us take better photos.

Yesterday afternoon we had a repeat of Peter ...

The Great Ceninngan Wall

We finally got to a superb wall dive, Cenningan Wall on the South East Corner of the island. Emo has been trying to get us on here for the past few days but currents have been too strong. Lembongan has major current changes here and it is hard to plan ...

Underwater Festival Road Trip Day 9

'Why' is for Yongala

Disaster strikes again! The crew fails to make it out to the Yongala together after today's trip was cancelled because of 25-knot winds.

Kieren and Nick were gutted since they didn't get to dive the wreck yesterday. Kieren had hoped to get a few ...

Underwater Festival Road Trip Day 8

The Great Divide

The crew was divided for the first time on the trip, with Seanna and Jason's names being drawn from the hat for the two spots left on today's Yongala trip.

the Yongala map

That left Kieren and Nick to fend for themselves, but the resourceful outcasts found a ...
