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!!

Teira or Longfin Batfish
Another shot from yesterday's dive at Robbs Jetty, a few kilometers south of Fremantle in Western Australia. The Teira Batfish is extremely rare in this area as they are normally only seen in the northern half of Australia and up in to the tropical waters around SE Asia. This one is a juvenile as the upper and lower fins get shorter as they mature.
