Diving at Tulamben

Flew to Bali on 2 October 2013 and stayed at Tulamben Wreck Divers Resort for 5 nights.  Did 12 dives over the next 4 days, ie 3 dives on each day.  Was supposed to spent another 2 days at Kuta after the diving to catch up with local Bali friends but was cut short due to cancellation of original return flight on 9 October.  Cancellation was due airport closure for APEC delegates.  With flights available only on either 7 or 10 October and also my coming trip to Ambon on 9 Oct, had no choice but to cut short trip and leave on 7 October.

Though the travel arrangement was problematic, the diving was fantastic.  This was one of my best, if not the best, underwater macro trip I have had.  Most of the things I wanted to see and capture were accomplished.  Here are some of the shots taken on this trip.
