Lembeh, Indonesia

More often than not, I struggle to get a good shot of the ever-shy cuttlefish. But things were different this time. On a night dive in Lembeh, I experimented with the red light function on my camera strobes. Fish and many other marine animals don’t really react to or see the colour red, because as a light, the hue penetrates the least through water. As a result, I was able to get close to this one curious critter.

mad for mantas

The Maldives

Want to see manta rays? Go to the Maldives. That’s where you’ll spot loads of them. This shot was taken at the Lankan Manta Point dive site in North Male. It has three cleaning stations so you’ll get to see manta rays swimming around. It’s important to never go too near (or above, or right smack in the middle) of the cleaning station; always stay around it and keep your distance from the mantas.
