Without a shadow of a doubt 2013 has been one of the best years for diving I have had since I took up the sport seven or so years ago. I quickly totalled up the number of dives I have done since the start of the year and discovered that I have just completed number 88 with a third of it still to go! The vast majority of these have been around Scotland and I already have a sizeable backlog of blog posts to sort for these. The backlog has however just become significantly larger as I have been lucky enough to spend the past few weeks enjoying some amazing diving in the much warmer waters around the Indonesian islands of Sulawesi and Bali.
The diving there was simply stunning and at Bunaken in particular it was often difficult to know where to point the camera first. It became clear fairly early on that it would only be possible to capture a small fraction of the amazing variety of life on the reefs but that didn’t stop me from going a bit nuts!! It’s going to take me a long time to sort through the vast number of photos I snapped whilst I was there, so here are just a few faces that stood out following a quick skim through them!
