A few other photos

Here are a few other photos that I took during the underwater photo competition. The first shot is of an octopus (~8 cm) eating a crab. The shell is visible beneath the octopus' mantle. Unfortunately, he disappeared into the sand pretty quick.

Inaugural Underwater Photo Contest

I participated in Timor Leste's Inaugural Underwater Photo Competition last week and feel extremely fortunate to have received a President's Award for the photo below. With the exception of the Manatutu River churning out silt on Wednesday and Thursday, the dive conditions during the competition were extraordinary. Rarely are Pertamina Pier and Tasi Tolu so clear. And the conditions produced some fantastic photos. Keep an eye out in Asian Diver online for all of the winning photos.
