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!!

Seven Mile Reef - 35 Metres
We call this dive site 'The 35 metre Ledge' and it's a great spot for catching Western Rock Lobsters during the fishing season. The 'reef' is only one to two metres high but the soft corals on it can be spectacular. Without torchlight or flash photography the reef looks brown and grey as the low light levels at this depth drain the colour. Flash photography brings it to life!!
