..quietly contemplating the giant tortoise! La Digue island, the Seychelles February 16 2012.
One of the highlights on my two-week visit at the Seychelles was the dive at the Ave Maria rock! You´ll see it as the silhouette island in one of the images.
It was me, the dive master and three french doctors who had arrived from La Reunion to do some sailing around the Seychelles archipelago on board an impressive catamaran. So I was in good hands..
Ave Maria is a granite rock that offers some nice diving conditions. White tip reef sharks are often spotted around here. The variety of life is astonishing as you can see on the images.
One of the interesting creatures we encountered was the Scorpionfish. It´s much like a chameleon. It is also very venomous, so don’t provoke! I have enhanced the fish sharpness and contrast and as you see it’s still hard to discover. Clue: you find the eyes at the lower part of photo.
After the visit to the underworld the french divers were a little disappointed for not having seen any sharks despite of my bleeding leg!! (collision with some corrals)
Bonus YouTube film from Seychelles Thank you Cinicas.
All photos taken with Canon Powershot S-100 with UW-house. This was my second visit under water with a camera. It´s tricky!
