Best Photos 2016

My yearly tradition is to review my photos from the previous year. Here is the link for previous years. So without further ado here are my top picks for this year (so far).

Top underwater photos in no particular order, I only went on one trip this year:

I had too many of my lovely family too choose from so I’ll be updating this again once I’ve combed through them 🙂

Just back from Cayman

Bottoms! Stingrays at stingray sandbar, Cayman 2016

Hi All, It’s been a while! Phew, just back from my first diving trip in over two years (since having my lovely daughter). I actually got back last week but the little one has not been well so we’ve been busy and sleep deprived.

Here’s a taster but I’m putting together a gallery page here. I’m experimenting with putting my pictures directly on my blog rather than pbase this time.

PhotoFriday – ‘Mountainous’

This week’s Photo Friday entry: ’Mountainous’

This weeks theme is Mountainous so here is a belated post with a photo from our trip to Machu Picchu. One day it’d be nice to go back with a decent camera to do it justice 😉 I’m gutted I missed posting on the week when the theme was Ocean! Doh.

PhotoFriday – ‘Alone’

This week’s Photo Friday entry: ’Alone’

This weeks theme is Alone. I don’t often take wistful photographs so this was a tricky theme. I liked these two though, one of Kat the Mermaid in the Red Sea and one of a lone archer fish in the Mangroves of Raja Ampat (where I was along for a bit too until I got spooked and went to find the others, didn’t want to be croc bait lol).

PhotoFriday – ‘Tranquil’

This week’s Photo Friday entry: ’Tranquil’

I dropped the ball the last few weeks for Photofriday (too much studying). This weeks theme is Tranquil. I like to think of myself as quite a chilled out person (most of the time) and central to my tranquility is going diving. It’s been too long and I miss it. There isn’t anything to compare. It is at once both exhilarating and calming. Mantas, (after you get over how massive they are), are incredibly graceful which is why I’ve chosen to feature one in this weeks post.

I hope your weekend is full of tranquility and rainbows 🙂

By the way, thanks for all who voted my last photofriday (large) into the Noteworthy archive 🙂

PhotoFriday – ‘Large’

This week’s Photo Friday entry: ’Large’

I can never resist a chance to talk about large spotty fish and this weeks photofriday theme falls right into my trap! Whalesharks gather to feast on tasty Bonito tuna eggs (see below) off the coast of Mexico and seem to ignore the snorkelers who are there to see them.

hmm yummy! :-/

PhotoFriday – ‘Transportation’

This week’s Photo Friday entry: ’Transportation’

This weeks theme is transportation and I immediately thought of the Thistlegorm, a WW2 wreck in the Red Sea. Its a ship, so transportation itself but it also is chockfull of other vehicles. A transporter of transportation 😀

Trains!
