Hi everyone, just sharing some pictures from a recent trip to Bali and South Lombok to look for hammerheads.
Spent a day each in Nusa Penida & Seraya, followed by 2 days at Belongas Bay in South Lombok. We got lucky on our first dive at Nusa Penida and say 4 molas, followed by a single mola on the 2nd dive. 3rd dive of the day was at Manta where we had fleeting glimpses of 1 white and 1 black manta.
The diving outside Belongas is really rock & roll. Really adrenaline dives with negative entries for every dive clutching on tightly to my dome port, worrying about getting run over by the boat, and trying not to fall on top of the diver next to me. The seas were really rough too. Ever seen the boat driver wearing a life jacket? haha
#1 Sunfish -- this mola tried to sneak above us when we were at 20m. couldn't ascend quick enough safely to get a decent shot
#2 Cleaning station at 35m
#3 A pair of nudibranchs
#4 Zanzibar shrimp - first time using a wet lens for me, uncropped
#5 My favourite shot - harley posing for the camera. this guy snuck up on to the coral after the first group of divers went past. perfectly poised.
