Spring Is Coming Back

It is starting to feel a lot like spring here recently. I hiked this hillside awhile ago, but it reminds me of today with all of the green from the rain and new growth in the trees.

I’d Travel All the Way Here for the Anemones

I love the sea, I love the fish, but I’d go on an entire dive trip just to watch the anemones slowly wave in the current.

Dripping Rock

The limestone rocks of Phang Nga Bay have two neat party tricks. They can both stick sharply out of the water and also look like they are dripping back into the water as they are eroded away by the bright green water below.

Acrophobia

Hong Kong is an extremely vertical city, with many opportunities to really test out if you definitely do, or definately do not have a fear of heights.

Nudi!

I love nudibranchs. Very tiny, hard to find, hard to photograph, and full of so many crazy colors when you get the photo right. I could spend a whole dive getting a good shot but normally have to move one after taking a few pics. Some would call this a sea slug, but I think the proper name for this one, Dermatobranchus Ornatus, rolls of the tongue much better!

Hong Kong Nights

Hong Kong is an amazing city by day or by night. There are towering buildings everywhere, and the city really shows them off with a light show every night. Many flock to take in the skyline from across the harbor, but you can also go above the city to the top of Victoria Peak for a birds eye view of everything going on below.

Richelieu Rock

One of my best dives in Thailand was at Richelieu Rock. This reef has a crazy amount of life, both fish and corals, and in this spot they all swirl together to make a very busy but very intricate pattern. The rock itself barely sticks out of the water, and is pretty far from other islands. This isolation must make it a safe place for all this life to exist.

Sunstar

In Oakland, sometimes the stars show themselves during the day.

The Middle of the Rock

The hike up to the saddle of Cathedral Rock isn’t far, but it is way up above where you start. The vantage point isn’t expected until you pop out at the top, and get a nice look at the rock on each side of you and the view down below.

All in the Details

Taking in all of the details and patterns is comforting, don’t you think?
