This blog contains photos, mainly taken during diving around Perth and other parts of Western Australia, with occasional other locations thrown in. This header photograph was taken during a trip to Sipadan Island off the coast of Borneo. It shows a Grey Reef Shark disappearing into the gloom, which drops to around 600 metres deep - I was at around 30 metres!!

Hidden in plain sight, the octopus is plentiful, but rarely seen while diving around Perth. They are able to change colour very quickly to blend in to the background and squeeze in to tiny spaces to hide from predators or to wait for a meal to pass. It was pure chance that let me spot this one, sitting quietly and letting the world pass by!
