Dark, deep and dangerous

Dark, deep and dangerous

We’re 42 meters below a no longer visible surface, having followed the shot line through the murky water and about to enter a 66 year old wreck through the propeller shaft; a meter square clearance surrounded by jagged rusty metal. My heart is racing but I’m willing myself to relax to slow down my air […]

A New Hope

A New Hope

I’m now back in Moalboal, nicely settling into a life that could easily become routine. When I left the area last year I really didn’t think I would be coming back here this soon, or possibly at all; I was planning to travel around Asia and dive everyplace I could find. How foolish of me […]

10 Bar Service!

10 Bar Service!

About six months ago I invested in a Patima housing for my Canon G10 together with an Inon Z-240 strobe, a major step up after my Canon Ixus with on-board flash. I’ve taken a few thousand shots with it now and have actually managed to get one or two decent pictures! The camera itself is […]

My last breath

My last breath

Tomorrow is my last day working for Kasai Village, at least for this time around, I’m sure I will be back here for some great scuba diving in Moalboal again soon. Last night we went to Chili Bar to see if this weeks pool competition brought any people… well, the competition was canceled but I […]

Order up!

Order up!

After starting to mentally compose the letter of complaint to EMS, the company who was supposed to deliver my parcel containing all of the exciting parts of the new underwater camera setup, and specially send a virtual boot to whoever is in charge of updating the non-functioning web-status, I was getting really impatient. I’ve never […]

The Underwater Photographer – Martin Edge

Before I left the UK I went online and ordered a bunch of UW photo books with full intention of reading them all and also bringing them on this ‘trip’ (I still haven’t figured out what to call this thing I’m doing!). Well, I also had a whole bunch of other stuff to do, such […]

Size matters

Size matters

A while back Tata showed us some pygmy seahorses over by Coption Point, very cool indeed, but since then the little buggers have disappeared… much to the chagrin of our boss who wants all the action easily accessible to show our guests. Obviously. Anyway, people have previously been able to see the seahorses on our […]

Sardine tornado!

Sardine tornado!

There’s several million sardines in a big ball playing charades with the divers around Pescador Island; one of the main diving attractions in the area. Apparently we’ve been able to see this phenomenon for a long time here but for some reason I’ve missed out on the show until a few weeks ago and now […]

Long time no type!

Long time no type!

Dear internet, I’m very sorry I haven’t updated this thing for a while… or if I should swallow my pride a bit, Annika & Pelle, here’s an update just for you and the rest of the family! My friend Damian has been over for a few weeks, and all the time I haven’t spent diving […]

Ninja diving

Ninja diving

I went night-diving last night, it’s something I particularly like but for some reason (lazy? too comfortable?) I haven’t been doing it much at all here. Yet! It was really cool, usually it’s only some of the guests that want to do it, so it’s pretty much always very small groups. Which is exactly what […]
