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 Red Scorpioncod
The Western Red Scorpioncod has extremely venomous spines and contact should be avoided. The shot is the final posting from my dive last Thursday at Robbs Jetty just south of Fremantle in Western Australia. This variety varies in colour depending on the depth of water it is living in - the deeper the water the more red coloured. This one was only around 8 metres deep and is more brown.
