A wet ride

Caught by one of those heavy showers that suddenly appears in this region of the Indian Ocean. She seemed happy enough anyway and after a short while the sun was dominating the scene again.

A number of paradise-like islands in the middle of the Indian Ocean… The Seychelles.

One of the highlights for me was the diving.

It might look like an easy motive but it´s not, I promise. It´s a different ballgame to take pictures under water. The creatures you meet accept your presence up to a certain point. If you get to close they are off in a hurry. No posing from this guy.

 “don´t swim to far out.. there are big sharks out there”  the twins told me and smiled between them.

It was mostly a friendly joke. But I knew that six months earlier sharks had killed one french man and two weeks later an english tourist not very far from this beach.
