Second choice -

Reflecting on Tiger Beach

... or so I thought when I looked at this negative for the first time.

Today, I scrutinized it again, and now I don't think it is such a bad image.

Actually, I like it enough to share it with you, dear reader.

Just looking at it makes me want to be back with my striped friends. Gotta be a bit patient, though...

My next trips to Tiger Beach will be in November of this year.

I am planning to do at least two back-to back trips, probably three.

Would you like to join me? Here are the details:

My diving method at Tiger Beach is "FILO" (= first in, last out). I normally dive there 8 hours non-stop, and if you asked me what I'd do when I have to pee, well, then I would tell you that there are two types of divers: Those who pee in their wetsuits and those who lie about it... :-)

I agree that it is a great shot. It shows how perfect the water was that week - smooth as a mirror.

The photo shows the slightest movement on the water's surface - the earth's gentle rhythmical pattern: no waves or even the slightest wind ripples.

It was a magical week. But the best for me was to be in the water with you, dear Wolfer.

Plus you can see the little "upside down" remora!

AH, Wolfy, it's a beautiful pic. It captures what our world down there is all about... that which you see, that which you don't and the millions of possibilities in between!
Wish wish wish I could join you in November, who knows... maybe it will happen... All my love alway

Another Wolf - Master piece. Great shot Wolfie and I, too, can't wait to be at Tiger Beach again.
