Diving Komodo: Angel Reef and Satonda

Diving Komodo: Angel Reef and Satonda

I have to confess that the first dive in Komodo was unbelievable! It was like turning a sugar lover loose in a candy store. There was so much to see! The Arenui is LUX. At 6:30 a.m. we were awakened, and everyone met in the dining room for “first breakfast”. First breakfast is continental…coffee, fruit, yogurt. […]

Monday Funday: Sponge Porn!

Monday Funday: Sponge Porn!

No, I’m not talking about Sponge Bob or any of his pals! I’m talking about sponges, the real sponges growing on the ocean floor. They are always beautiful, of course, but I had the thrill recently of seeing them spawn! At first I thought it looked like those ocean vents in the very, very deep […]

Fab Photos Friday: The Biggest Fish in the Ocean

The incredible Whale Shark is the biggest fish in the ocean! And it is such a beautiful, gentle fish! It has to be said that whale sharks probably don’t have Einstein’s IQ since they have the smallest brain in the ocean for their size, but give them a break …they help keep plankton and krill under control, […]

Fab Photos Friday: Do you love Anemones?

Fab Photos Friday: Do you love Anemones?

Long fascinated by anemones, I take photos of them on almost every dive. Other photographers look at me like I’m crazy (probably am, I admit), but I think they are incredibly beautiful. Anemones are close relatives to corals and jellies. They have stinging polyps and spend most of their time hanging out on coral reefs […]

Do You Want to See Amazing Photos of Underwater Life in Myanmar?

In 2014 I traveled solo to dive the Mergui Archipelago, part of which is in Myanmar. For more on that adventure, check me out on Scubaverse at http://www.scubaverse.com/diving-the-mergui-archipelago/. In some ways the trip was disappointing (weather conditions), but wherever one dives, there is always discovery and the thrill of excitement. Here are some of the creatures […]

Fab Photos Friday: Starfish Creature Feature!

As I have often said, I love everything below the waves. Everything is colorful, interesting, and well, downright fascinating! One creature I love to photograph is the Seastar, or Starfish. They come in varied sizes and colors, but they are all Echinoderms. Echinoderms are invertebrates (meaning they have no vertebral column (spine) and many have […]

Fab Photos Friday: Funky Fish!

Since I am a diver, and an underwater photographer, you must know I love fish. After every dive, I go back to the house/room/wherever I am staying, and immediately download my photos and start editing.  I love to relive the dive, but I am also absolutely fascinated by our finny friends, and the funkier the better. […]

Fab Photos Friday: Amazing Cozumel Diving

Cozumel diving is always fabulous, but it has been exceptional this past week!  Let me share the incredible experience with you! I had the most amazing encounter with an Eagle Ray! Usually they want nothing to do with divers, but since there were two of us only, she kept circling around and allowed me to […]
