Creatures of the Lembeh Strait- 03.31.10

DIVEMAIN.jpg On visual inspiration, there is something about the overwhelming sense of calm serenity with nothing but the sound of your own bubbles and the occasional boats overhead… as you just swim about watching the most incredible and mind blowing creatures going about their daily lives all around you… so, on “vacation pictures” ~ here are some of the many (there are hundreds of photos, here’s just a selection of fun ones!) creatures i’ve been encountering diving the Lembeh Strait of Indonesia this week (hiding out at Kungkungan Bay Resort)… and besides the diving creatures, you also get a peek at the large crab i ran into, and the impressive Tuna statue in the center of Bitung (tuna capital of indonesia?)… see it all on the next page!

p.s. and on design inspiration ~ it sounds silly, but i’ve totally been dreaming up redesigns, proposal ideas, and more while watching the creatures under the sea… also photo credits go to my dad who’s the photographer (i’ve been tasked more with helping find things in our team!)

For the whole Kungkungan Bay Resort Lembeh Strait dive-cation series - [The dramatic moon] [Wonderpus vs Mimic Octopus] [Frogfish, Nudibranchs, and more creatures!]

7 Notes

Muck dives are cool, even entertaining, and critters are always fascinating.
However, I found that the beauty of the sea in the dramatic UW landscapes and the abundance of life.

the star fish looks like a pillow. maybe it IS a pillow that somebody accidently drop from a cruise ship.

That crab is carrying eggs! Hopefully it doesn’t get squished or something…

It’s a whole new world under the water. Been watching BBC documentaries (like Life etc). Every single time there’s almost a slight bit of disbelief.

The colors are beautiful.
