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!!

Western King Wrasse
I captured this shot on my first dive some years ago, on the wreck of the Key Biscayne, a floating oil rig which sank in a storm in 1983 off the coast of WA near Lancelin. The Western King Wrasse is often seen off the coast along the west of Western Australia and is not found anywhere else, although there are closely related species in New South Wales. This specimen was around 30 centimetres in length.
