Komodo - September 2015
Not easy to get to (overnights in Singapore and Bali along the way), but well worth the effort. You are rewarded with some of the best diving in the world, not to mention spectacular scenery above water. Below are posted some of the underwater shots I took. At the bottom of the page are a few taken above water. Also, here is a map of the route we were on during our ten day trip aboard the Aurora liveaboard, one I can highly recommend. A highlight of the trip was seeing the Komodo dragons up close.
Actually, I think there are two of them. With a brittle star.
Biggest nudi I've ever seen
Some shots to show how rich with life the reefs are
Finally saw a ribbon eel completely out of his hole!
With a couple of ladybug amphipods

The Marina Sands hotel in downtown Singapore. The sky was very hazy from all the fires in Indonesia.
