Mola Mola..WTfstop?

Lembongan Island. Amazing. Blue Corner Dive Resort has only been opened since July but what a place! First dive today was Mola Mola. I was in awe, in shock, mesmerized by this massive, gentle, graceful and weird looking creature. I slowly descended beneath him (33 metres and about 21 degrees..brr), took a shot, and needed to get closer. Then took another shot from about 2 metres away...but hadnt changed my f stop!!So a very dark picture! Doh, there is a challenge for tomorrow..more Mola Mola, more paying attention to my camera settings!

We also managed to see a turtle, large eagle ray, cuttlefish(apparently I took photos of the first one seen on the island??) and beautiful healthy coral reef.

A huge drift dive in the afternoon for about 2.5 kms in 40 minutes. And we avoided the place with the really strong current. Happy diving everyone.

    Well greetings from sunny Sipadan, where buddying up with dive pioneer Clement Lee of Borneo Divers fame has been fun and very insightful. Bottom Temps a beaty at 28 C. Not the best of viz in some sites last few days but today got 20m plus at mid reef - we got the barracudas on top and schooling bumphead parrotfish altogether! Also did 2amazing macro dives at nearby Si Amil island. Memories of Lembeh started flooding back with ornate ghost pipefish, frogfish, orangutan crab abound. Well its back to Sipadan again. 3 days in a row yeah!! Are there more folks competing that are going to post here or is it mainly the wa aquarazzi? Greets to tammy and lani btw : D
