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 locally in some deeper water near Three Mile Reef off Hillarys Marina in Perth. The Flathead often lies like this, camouflages in the sand awaiting its prey. The dorsal spines on this fish are poisonous, but they are an excellent table fish.
