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 at Sipadan Island off the NW coast of Sabah, formerly Borneo. The Feather Star looks like a plant but it is in fact a creature which feeds by filtering food from the water by using its arms and passing it down to the mouth situated in the centre. they can be found at all depths and fossilised Feather Stars have been found dating back many millions of years. They are found attached to coral or as they grow older, free swimmimg.
