Back from a hiatus of posting! Part 3 of my snoot series. I miss shooting underwater. Probably need a new setup to further advance the photography skills. Here's one of the porcelain anemone crab (Neopetrolisthes maculosus) ^

Part deux of my first few attempts at underwater snoot photography. Meet the Harlequin shrimp (Hymenocera picta). The fragile beautiful critters always amuse me with their looks. I mean, seriously, take a good look at its features! How beautifully are they created??! Always so mind-blowing to see critters under the sea and thanking God for this amazing Earth we live on

Dedicating the next few posts to my scuba shots since I haven't posted them in a while. I got started a little on snoot photography earlier in April. Snooting isn't easy, it takes a whole lot of time and patience to perfect that shot so you can imagine the countless number of shots I took to get a few nice ones

This nudibranch is otherwise known as Shaun the Sheep (Costasiella kuroshimae), is a specie of marine sea slugs with an unusual ability to photosynthesize
^
They retain the chloroplasts from the algae they eat and use them to manufacture their own energy - just like how a plant would. The process, also known as kleptoplasty, is only found in some species of sea slugs. It isn't that good at photosynthesizing, but some species can live for months on just photosynthesis alone

To my beautiful best friend, it's been a short journey being friends with you but one that is of quality. It only means that there's a longer journey out there together, as we see where our thirties bring us. Exciting times await, & I still hold you to that just-us-two trip that we were meant to take! Come home safe. Happy birthday my love. 😘

Timor Leste 🇹🇱, it was an interesting solo journey. Made heaps of new friends, bonded with the locals, learnt Tetun & Portuguese, saw the your beautiful untouched coast, & clocked my 300th dive. It's been one helluva ride. It's true they say you learn a lot about yourself when you travel solo, & indeed I have. I just wished I could do something more for the locals here.
I do miss my friends though, to the next dive trip anyone? 😅

Today I left the last session of my class feeling like the last 2 weeks of my life has changed. It felt like a sudden jolt to me that there is just so much out there waiting to catch on my capabilities within my capacity.
It has been such an intensive training program, loaded with lectures & hands on practicals and to be given the opportunity to do it, felt like a second chance at life. I went in knowing that fitness and nutrition goes well together, definitely so. But as days went by, I sat in class, resonating every word about how important nutrition is to your health & wellness. & I say this again, take control of your health first, then your life. You may have $1 million dollars in your bank but if you are unhappy and unhealthy, then that million just doesn't cut it. I preach wellness today because someone I used to work with slowly ingrained that in me for many years, & for that, I have her to thank for where I am today. What would I do without you, even if you're miles away from me @komalschronicles
Almost the final lap, with a theory exam & a practical exam to clear, felt like I was doing my dive master course when I had so much to clear with theory and practicals, what would I feel when I take my instructor course then? That's my struggle next year to accomplish.
Life is always about constantly being in search for more knowledge. Never let that fire slow down. "I never liked my life being dangled and held on by ropes, but this year I stepped out twice to do so." Taken @ Nusa Ceningan, Bali July 30th
