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).

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

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.

This week’s Photo Friday entry: ’Small Scale’
This weeks theme is small scale, the smallest thing I’ve ever photographed is a hairy shrimp. It basically looks like a speck in real life. I’m not sure if I like photographing things this small, I haven’t made up my mind. Theres an element of accomplishment when its in focus (they flimflam about a lot) but when you genuinely cannot see the thing in anything other than the screen on the camera it detracts from observing the wildlife. However, the other part of my mind thinks its amazing I can appreciate such smallness whereas other divers (without cameras) would not be able to.

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😀
