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!!

Striped Catfish - Juvenile
The Striped catfish is not see very often on the reefs around Perth, however, the juveniles are often found in crevices and caves on the reef or even in man-made structure such as large pipes etc. They usually form closely packed balls for protection. This shot was taken on the 23 Metre Ledge NW of Mindarie Marina, which is located in Perth's northern suburbs.
