Back in the Red Sea!

After 16 months it was fantastic to dive into the Red Sea again.

Below two photos of the Sailfin Tang. 🙂 The fish is one of my favorites.

Threadfin Butterflyfish is a bit shy. So it is not easy to get a good capture of it. This time I got one. 🙂

The Clownfish / Anemonefish is always a delight to the eye. This one was only 5 cm …so I used the camera’s macro zoom fully.

Plunge into the Red Sea!

We love to photograph in the Red Sea. Have a look at the most recent photos. You just might decide to plunge in yourself! 🙂 I can warmly recommend snorkeling, diving and photographing close to the coral reefs.

Exciting Red Sea

During our vacation in Port Ghalib, we got many new and exciting photos underwater.

Sergeant Major is a fun fish, it is certainly not a shy fish. It happily swims close to the photographer.

The Red Sea Raccoon Butterflyfish is such a beautiful fish. I love to photograph it. But as it is a shy fish, it is not easy to get very close to it.

The Red Sea Bannerfish is quite an elegant fish. It usually swims with its mate, very close to each other.

I have often seen two Masked Butterflyfish, swimming together close to the caves under the coral reef. Once I saw quite many of them, swimming right in front of me. It was a magnificent moment.

Sun and underwater photography

We are lucky to get to travel again to the Red Sea. As November is a very dark and rainy month in Finland, we look forward to the fantastic sunshine of Port Ghalib in Egypt. We also look forward to stay in our favourite hotel, formerly Intercontinental Palace, nowadays Red Sea Hotel’s The Palace Port Ghalib. The sandy beach and the coral reef in front of it are fabulous.

A great day comes to an end at ICPG

We can warmly recommend Port Ghalib, the Palace Port Ghalib hotel and to dive into the Red Sea.

To go underwater is fantastic.

Mysterious and exciting – the Red Sea

We have fallen in love with the Red Sea and its colorful, mysterious life. Soon we will again dive into the Red Sea with our cameras. We have waited for this so much.

Here’s a few photographs to show you how wonderful it is in the Red Sea.
