Last 2 dives of my Sharm trip

Dahab5 Nov 2013 - 12 Nov 2013

I recently done a weeks diving in Sharm El Sheikh to complete my advanced open water course and get some photography practice in using artificial light/strobes for the very 1st time.

We were diving with Ocean College Dive Center for the week and as we were a decent size group from a scuba school based in the UK we were able to say where we'd like to go. Me being a nivice to the Red Sea just went along with the rest quite happy to just be underwater.

Well the last day we chose as a group to take an hour and half to 2 hour bus journey from Sharm to Dahab and dive the Canyon and Blue Hole for our last 2 dives of the trip. It was well worth the trip out there with great sightings of scorpion fish and lots of lionfish as you can see from the photo's. It was also pretty cool watching freedivers practice in the blue hole. Pretty impressive stuff.

Well worth the visit expecially if you like getting some shore diving in as well as the boat dives.

Your photos are really good! Do you do much post processing or are those basically straight off the camera?

Thank you. I really appreciate your comments. I don't do much post processing as I am a novice to photography and i am just in the process of learning it all. I haven't got to the stage of learning photoshop e.t.c. yet. I just know how to crop and do a little auto work but with my best shots the colours were already in the photo from the strobe lighting I used. So apart from the cropping you could say they are straight off the camera. Thanks again.

Thanks both. It's a scorpion or stonefish fish Dawn. I'm pretty sure it's a tassled scorpion fish but maybe wrong on exact identification.

Looks like a Scorpion fish to me, but agree - good shot!
