"Seahorse in danger" . NEVER DO THIS ! To my sitemod collegues : This is NOT my hand on the pic and the animal was NOT harmed in any way. ( I stopped my buddy in time...after my "de-briefing" to him, I don't think that he will ever try this again ).

Storm over Gozo.
We lost 2 out of 4 days for diving on a recent trip due to very stormy weather. Although we couldn't dive, it did make an impressive site.

Piece of "art". This was exhibited during the kas underwater art exhibition in 2002. Several artists of different kinds placed their artwork underwater, where it was open to visit for snorclers and divers.
