The photobombing groper
Sorry, looks like I skipped one day of blogging and didn’t even realize it. Pics from yesterday will come later. I took it slowly yesterday. In the morning I had some washing to do and then I walked a bit around Darling Harbour. When I found that the Maritime Museum had an exhibition from the Wildlife Photographer of the Year-pics I went to see that. Wonderful pics! But other than that I just didn’t do anything as I needed some time to relax.
This morning I took a taxi to the Abyss Dive shop which is a bit outside of Sydney. I had been diving with them two years ago and they are a real good dive-shop. I was greeted by my guide Matt there. We packed our stuff in his car and were off to Oak Park which is a nice and colourful dive-site. As you will see on the pics there was a lot of sand flying around and there wasn’t a lot I could do about it. Wonderful star fish and some cool nudis. We even saw two Port Jackson sharks. I had wanted to see that one so I was happy. 🙂 When I saw the blue groper for the first time I wanted to take a close-up shot but he swam away. Little did I know that he would follow us on both dives and photo-bomb a lot of my pics… 😀 It started to get annoying after a while but I couldn’t chase him away… here are the pics… The underwater world in Sydney is a bit different from what I know – I would say it is a mix between Norway and Mediterranean… somehow… 😉
