Ok, I’m diverging from winter back to 100 degree weather and the warm Red Sea in Saudi Arabia. I’m blogging dive photos for the next days. I have so many shots recently. So I decided to spread them over my three blogs. This one is a different fish than I have seen on the reef. Perhaps if you swim around in neon yellow, you are essentially asking a big fish to dinner. I guess that’s why there aren’t many like him swimming about. It’s been particularly nice on the learning curve for me to get an occasional shot like this. I will tell you that very few shots by percentage are keepers. I estimate we’re at about 40 feet. This was from last week’s dive. Today I get to try out spiffy new equipment. I finally put down the money and got my own. So it’s kind of like going from rental skiis to new ones with real edges. And I have a real dive computer to record depth and all that neat data.
