Saw the sunbeams
Photographic Journal Part 2 of the trip to the Maldives. On board the MV Eagle Ray Live on Board (LoB) May 23rd - 2nd June 2008. Spectacular scuba diving. Total of 29 dives - including one open sea crazy snorkel swim with a whale shark.
But for me I love the sea- I love scuba diving because it gives me the freedom of swimming like a fish in the deep blue. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be in outer space - being weightless, seemingly unhampered by gravity, this comes close. I fly, I soar. Its such a beautiful experience.
(Update: I just watched a documentary on Astronauts - and one part of their training involves training as scuba divers - as being underwater mimics being in outer space).
My photography skills seem to have improved. I learnt how to use a torch to help illuminate some of the shots. Camera used is a point and shoot Fuji F31 with the original underwater housing.
