Any diver will tell you that the last few dives of a dive trip tend to be among the best of the entire journey! Our last day was the most colorful. I’m not sure why that is, perhaps the ocean and its creatures want to make sure we will come back to see them. Whatever the reason, here is a photoblog of day 10 in Raja Ampat, on the luxurious Arenui Boutique Liveaboard, with Andrea Marshall and Ray of Hope Expeditions! Enjoy the colors of the sea!
Holy crap, these are beautiful! My father was a diver and my husband a photographer, so on behalf of them both, I thoroughly enjoyed your post. I’ll be showing these to them! Well done!
Thank you! I just put out a book called Fish Faces, Photos and Fun Facts, it should be hitting Amazon and B&N soon. It is on http://www.lulu.com right now!
unbelievable pictures, I loved them!!
I know that jealousy is the thief of joy, and as happy for you as I am (and I truly am) I am jealous of these trips and dives you go on. How remarkable. How beautiful. How lovely. Wow, those photos are gorgeous and pure heaven.
How I would love to take you! Water is so healing, and the ocean soothes pain. When I am diving, my chronic back pain is gone. Then of course, I go back to gravity, but there is nothing like floating to still the pain.

I love the picture with you and the giant clam. You look like you’re having so much fun.

You know I am!
Wow, what an amazing experience. I never realize that they were that big so many incredible things to see under the water.
Endless fascination! The huge clams were so colorful and sparkly!
Wow, your photos are really cool! What kind of camera did you take them with? Are they stills from a GoPro film or do you have an underwater camera? My favourite is the blue spotted stingray.

Thanks! I have an underwater camera, housing and strobes. I use an Olympus mirrorless camera, and so far, I love it.
Your pictures are absolutely amazing! I’ve only recently got in to diving so this has me very excited to go again 🙂
