PhotoFriday – ‘Texture’

This week’s Photo Friday entry: ’Texture’

It seems this weeks PhotoFriday theme is a repeat, but no matter. Different surfaces have different textures, the image above shows lots of different underwater textures. The image below, uses dramatic light and shadow to bring out the the texture of the sponges.

I put this one in too, its not underwater but the cave itself has so much strong texture highlighted by the torchlight I couldn’t resist.

If you want to see my underwater photos from various places then check out the collection of galleries in my Reef Beasties Gallery.

Psst… Please check out my excellent used Nikon Gear page, I’ve swapped over systems and I’m trying to raise money on my previous gear.

PhotoFriday – ‘Quiet’

This week’s Photo Friday entry: ’Quiet’

What a perfect theme to resume my posting to! I’ve been very quiet on the blog of late in part because of the lack of interesting (to me) themes from photofriday.com but also because I’ve been away in Mexico. I’ve got lots of interesting photos to share with you all but for now here’s a couple from the Cenotes in Mexico. I’ll put some more posts up about them with more details soon.

I’ve not done much fresh water diving and hardly any diving in caves and one of the things that struck me was the quietness. You’d expect underwater that the sound would be off anyway but not so, the reef is full of sounds. The caves were very quiet, cold and dark. And of course stunningly beautiful.
