If you’ve found this page, then you were probably searching for something related to scuba diving (or, more likely it appears, from my Google Analytics reports, how to upload quicktime to YouTube).

However, this blog is now officially zombied. I’ve relaunched the site as a photography blog, reflecting how I’m spending more of my spare time.

Ribbon reefs

A few weeks ago I received an e-mail from the editor of ECOS magazine, the house publication of Australia’s CSIRO (Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation), asking permission to use a photo included on this site to illustrate an article to be featured in an upcoming issue.

Trip reports

Raja Ampat

The first installment of a report on our trip to the Raja Ampat islands in October 2005. Just getting there can be an adventure. We flew from Brisbane to Singapore, then to Manado and finally to Sorong, over three days, and we still weren’t quite there.
