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!!

Nudibranch - Chromodoris Reticulata (I think!)
This shot was taken while diving on the Rockingham (WA) Wreck Trail last week. My first dive on this site and I don't know why I haven't done it sooner. The site has two small aeroplanes and two small boats together with a reef of old tyres and a 'Chook Pen', (Chicken House), all sunk close to the beach and connected by ropes to make navigating the site easy. I was lucky to get 5 - 10 metres visibility, it's normally less due to the silty bottom. The maximum depth is 18 metres.
This Nudibranch is one of the larger ones I come across, about 3 inches, and its colour and markings were excellent.
