New year and New photos

Happy New year everyone, 2013... Wow... doesn't time fly....

Well since the new year I have done my first Dive which was a Padi Wreck course for a client, but still managed to get some great underwater shots. Yesterday I went for a small walk along the rocky shoreline of Ghar Hasan near Birzebbuga and took a few shots of the area for people to see the topology.

Here are a selection of then, only using my Sony W10 compact for all of these.

 A wonderful Octopus that we saw on the Dive
 Its now the Season of the Jellyfish, these however don't make the easiest of Subjects.
Another of the Octopus, very playful creature and certainly very clever.
 Ghar Hasan, Near Birzebbuga. In the distance you can see the Oil rig and Filfla Island. Great topology of the island here, this side of the coast actually goes down the deepest.  As you can see its crumbling away.  just at teh end near the pinnacle is the Cave System of Ghar Hasan, which has now been closed off for safety.
 Another great on looking down into the clear blue water
Looking like a great place for climbing and Cliff walking or should that be jumping.

The First of Many...

Inspiration comes in many different way, friends, family, colleagues.... or people and places....

Things may get that memory stiring from years ago, music brings back so many of the little things that happened in the past...

Pictures however capture exactly what you felt at that time, gives everyone an insight to what you see and what you feel.. Some people take Photo's, they plan and get the lighting right, the choose a particular time of day to get that one image that they are seeking... Others take snaps... snaps are a moment, nothing planned, just that one moment that everyone understood.

This is a snap blog, moments treasured above (Terra) and Below (Fathoms) in our beautiful world... enjoy my memories.. share them, use then .... but most of all take your own ;)

This was a great shot from a Dive near Dingli Cliffs, the bottom falls away to 50+ Metres and there are wonderful swimthroughs, caves and Cars... yes it seems the this is one of the Maltese Car Dumps.

Another Underwater one of a good Friend of Mine whilst we were enjoying another of the Maltese Island Dives, The Um El Faroud a Tanker that is just off the Blue Grotto.
