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 shot was taken on the Gemini dive wreck on 31 December 12, which is described two posts ago. This species is very common on the reefs around Perth in Western Australia and are often caught by fishermen, but they are not good eating. This is a typical pose - they lie on the bottom looking very alert, as if on sentry duty! The elongated dorsal fin ray is indicative of an adult male.
