Another great trip,not the clearest of waters but good enough to not have to use the fall back spot that the bait was put at on the way through to get heaps of life there for when we might have to go back that way to at least get some pics and lawn mower blennies.
TA top morning over all,the water was quite warm,very calm and sadly not many of us went to this one but fun alround was still had.

This was the sunrise we were able to enjoy on our way up the coast.

There is a fish in this pic,its a scorpaenopsis,not a pretty fish.
We used to call them a dragon fish,if you saw it in a net you would know why.

Some invert pics from the day.
The quality of pics isn't the best but it will get better,hopefully.

This is a good example of how good these fish can be at avoiding us catching them at times.

love the sunrise pic you took ---- excellent -- my fav part of the day Smile
the bleenie, 3rd pic down has the sweetest face -- very cute .. never had one of these fish before . looks like he would have such a personality in the tank
also those macro/close up shots of the coral look pretty good -- i guess that all comes with practise ... i hope i can do the same with my new camera --- cheers

Admin good photos, the underwater camera did a good job, especial considering the low visibility.
You made the right choice going macro.
I tried "closeup wide angle", but there was too many particles in the water. It was a good chance to try battling the external flash, it is only a matter of time, but I'll get it right. Very Happy
Boy it was good to get back in the water after so long. cheers
