PhotoFriday – ‘Yellow’

This week’s Photo Friday entry: ’Yellow’

We all live in a yellow submarine, a yellow submarine, a yellow submarine.

If only, that’d be very cool (as long as it had big viewing windows).

This weeks theme is yellow, and my photo above is an old one but one I still like regardless of the mixed reactions of my peers at the time. I love wall to wall fish pictures, even closeups like this where you can’t really tell straight away whats going on. This is two butterfly fish, one behind the other, not a mutant one with the face in the middle ;) Below are some more yellow things from under the sea… sadly no submarines though:

PhotoFriday – ‘Minimalism’

This week’s Photo Friday entry: ’Minimalism’


This weeks theme is Minimalism. I could have gone several ways with this one but I decided on this really old photo from 2006. I’ve always liked the simplicity of air bubbles when diving, most times other peoples bubbles are annoying but for shots like these you don’t have to wait long in busy places like the red sea for someone to be deeper than you. I’ve also posted a non-diving one over on my other blog too so do check that out.

Published in Undersea Journal

I’ve got 4 photos in the Q4 edition of Undersea Journal (a business to business publication for the PADI Diving Society). If any of my friends have a copy and can snapshot me the layout I’d be really interested to see it. Thanks.

PhotoFriday – ‘Skyline’

This week’s Photo Friday entry: ’Skyline’

Ankor Wat Skyline

This weeks theme is skyline. Its interesting, when you think of a place you usually picture some famous scene, some skylines are so famous that if you blacked out the picture apart from the sky you’d still know where it was. I picked out a few of my pictures which I think illustrates this. Above, Ankor Wat (Cambodia) at sunrise. Below, Singapore Marina Bay skyline.

PhotoFriday – ‘Family’

This week’s Photo Friday entry: ’Family’

Mum and Baby Manatee

Last Friday’s theme is family so I thought I’d sneak in this post before the week ends and tomorrows photofriday theme is announced. Its a theme close to my heart at the moment because I’m on maternity leave taking care of my new wee girl. Above you’ll see a photo of a manatee mum & baby – awwww. Below is our adorable little one.

Happy world Octopus Day!

Today is world octopus day! I love these guys, especially when they change colours & textures to match the reef (see video below).

Octopuses are worthy of appreciation for a number of reasons. First of all, they are one of earth’s great survivors. Indeed, despite their relatively short life span, octopus fossils date back more than 300 million years, meaning that they pre-date even dinosaurs. They are also highly intelligent, with around 500 million neurons located in their brains and arms, allowing them to bypass their insticts, learn lessons and solve problems.

In addition, they are visually stunning, coming in various different colours and shapes, while the Giant Pacific Octopus is able to grow to weigh more than 600 pounds!


I meet the one above on the barge wreck in the Red Sea, part of a mating pair (at least I assume mating and not flighting). Here’s the video. Apologies for the quality, I was using a macro lens so I was very far away from them but its interesting footage. The photobombing fish didn’t help ;)

Not sure if wonderpus count but I doubt they get their own day so here is a cheeky chappy I meet in Raja Ampat:

to see some others I’ve meet see the last ‘world octopus day’ post I made here. For more octopus fun check twitter, theres some really cool stuff online today. Don’t forget to add me, I’m scuba_suzy on twitter.
