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!!

This shot was taken this morning on a site called Coral Gardens, which is about 5 kilometres NW of Mindarie Marina in the northern suburbs of Perth. The depth here is between 18 and 25 metres and vizibility was about 15 metres. The Common Scalyfin, not a very pretty name, is abundant around here and they are usually very bold - coming close to make popping noises and to nip at your extremities.
