Dive into the Red Sea

The underwater world is so exciting, beautiful and magnificent.

The Yellowtail Tang is so exotic. And a shy fish too. Glad to have captured it with my camera. 

This post is for your inspiration. A little bit of joy and color to the day! Hope you like what you see.

Back In The Red Sea

What a thrill it is to dive into the Red Sea waters. Each time I am happy and excited, and I know I will see beautiful sealife, maybe a few new species… and all those wonderful, colorful corals, that Red Sea still has.

Here are a few of my new underwater photos:

Exciting and beautiful Red Sea Underwater World

What a thrill it is to dive into the Red Sea waters. Each time I am thrilled and excited, and I know I will see beautiful sealife, but maybe also something a bit exciting…

Here is two gorgeous Masked Butterflyfish. I edited the silver like sand to turquoise.

It is a joy to see many the different kinds of Parrotfish, Tangs and Angelfish.

In Egypt and Jordan, you can also enjoy sandy dunes, if you do not want to enjoy the thrills and joys of the Red Sea.

I marked with purple balls the places in the Red Sea, where we have been to.

Sometimes I meet the Giant Moray. It is not something I actually want, as this huge predator is not calm and shy, it is a predator that will attack you if you go and disturb it. It hunts at night, but during the day you can see it swimming from one hiding place to another.

We have enjoyed many great breakfast , lunch and dinner meals in Egypt and Jordan. The variety is quite big, sometimes huge, and especially the oriental dishes or sauces are fantastic. Sometimes we choose anyway just a quick, small burger, after photographing in the sea, and the take a nap.

It is wonderful to take a walk in the early evening, after the hottest hours are behind us. But before 6 PM when the sun sets quickly.

Once we flew home just before the sunset. The sunsets are so beautiful in Egypt and Jordan.

If you love sealife, welcome to my Redbubble photography page, where you can choose sealife photos as t-shirts, coffee mugs, wall art, pillows, bags, notebooks, bath mats, and greeting cards. Great for the home, and also exotic and unique gift to your friends.

Awarded underwater photography

We love to photograph in the Red Sea. Which my travel blog followers know well by know. 🙂

It is such a joy to dive into the Red Sea and explore the sealife, the underwater world, which is so beautiful, silent and fantastic. Totally amazing.

What a joy it is for a photographer, to receive an award and a recognition, and this from National Geographic.

My underwater macrophotograph received first an editor’s note and was soon chosen by National Geographic editors as 1 of the Daily Dozen (best photos) January 30, 2019.

This underwater view looks like a painting! The colors blend together like an impressionist’s brush strokes. Great work getting sharpness in the fish’s eyes.

Here is the photo:
Whiteband Damsel Macro Photography.jpg
Whiteband Damsel, Plectroglyphidodon leucozonus in the Red Sea. In a small cave, there was this wonderful 10 cm damselfish, among the fantastic corals and seagrass.
It is a little bit of an aggressive fish, protecting its territory. This you can see in this photo, where the fish comes right at me. Look closely and you can see the teeth. It did bite me. If you thought macro photography is tough on land… try it underwater!
We hope to visit the Red Sea soon and who knows what we might capture this time with the cameras.
Here are a few wonderful sealife photographs:
