Undersea Tree

This christmas tree isn’t a tree at all, it’s a worm living under this coral. It will keep its delicate blue crowns exposed like this to catch food and breathe until it detects something nearby, and then will quickly retract into the coral. This one let me get close enough for a shot with my camera before deciding I was too close and going away to hide.

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.

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!

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.

Out to Sea from Koh Phi Phi

Taken from onboard the boat taking us away from this beautiful island, and on to the next stop. We were hard to miss with this bright red deck against the water.

Lychee

Lychee available from a delicious Thai Grocer. I thought it was more interesting to take pictures of it than to eat it.


Street Food

Street food, Thai style. These vendors were everywhere in Bangkok, and you had to at least try it. Most of the street food was actually very good, and certainly an experience!


Bangkok at Night

A scooter races by the bright lights of Soi Cowboy in Bangkok at night. We made our trip though this street short, but not before I had time to get some pictures of the neon lights and scooters racing everywhere.


Golden Palace

Taken at the Grand Palace in Bangkok, Thailand. I really loved the crazy colors on these statues. Getting a shot of them from below let me show off their intricate colored tiles against the gold temple and blue sky.
