New look! And more pictures!

Initially, when I set up the dark background/light font, I thought it would make it easier to read. I hmm’d and hawwed over it, and I’ve decided that I think something a little more muted and traditional would be easier on the eyes. Hence, new design! Plus, I really love jellyfish, and so now there’s a jellyfish.

In celebration of new designs and jellyfish, here are some pictures:

These were both taken at night, on the edge of the lagoon. The jellyfish were attracted to the lights on the underside of the deck, and there was an entrancing dance of jellies swarming about the light in such a hypnotic way. We stared at them for ages.

The above photos were all taken at the Poor Knights Marine Reserve. I like the little things, because they don’t move too quickly or too far, so they’re much easier to photograph! Hope you like them!

Happy New Year! Here are some pictures.

Happy New Year to all, I hope that the holidays have been relaxing and fun. As per usual, the antipodean summer gets a bit chaotic, and the idea of long, relaxing summer days vanishes with the inevitable emails, texts, phone calls and other methods of communication that immediately turn all that beautiful free time into busy bee time.

But! That’s hardly a complaint. The days have indeed been busy, but at least they’ve been busy with productive things! There have been many days of diving in the spring and summer, and I was lucky to get a few good shots in. So, without further ado, have a look at some of the little ones living under the waves:

So, a few photos for you to enjoy. I will hopefully have more to share soon, and some actual news too!
