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!!

The Circular Stingaree is fairly rare in the Waters off Perth and I was lucky to find this one, my first, amongst the rocks under the reef at Coral Gardens, a dive site off Mindarie Marina, a few kilometers to the north of Perth. The pattern of spots on this fish are what make it easy to identify and it has a venomous barb on the top surface of its tail.
