While I tried to capture a shot of these juvenile squids near to the diving platform, a curious guest is watching me and wonders what the heck I am doing there ;-) The lights on top are reflections of my strobe lights on water surface.

Wreck of a WWII Bristol Beaufighter at 40 metres off the coast of Malta. It crashed on an operational mission in 1941 and is remarkably well preserved, with wings, fuselage, engines, propellors, nose cannon and undercarriage all intact.

A captured 450kg Bluefin. Although very saddened by the plight of these gentle giants, profits from diving with them allows some to be released back to the wild. I had mixed emotions about this rare chance to dive with such magnificent fish.
