I just returned from bali and singapore. did 26 fantastic dives in bali during 8 diving days. I stayed in Ubud, Padang Bai, Amed, Kuta and Tulamben. (No diving in Ubud or Kuta!). All shots were taken with a Nikon D80, 10.5mm, 60mm, and 105mm lenses.
Here's a link to the gallery of underwater photos the trip:
And here are a sample of the photos, enjoy!
If anyone ever needs any info on diving bali, just let me know, this was my 2nd trip there...
In the gallery you'll find some shots of the bumphead parrot fish morning migration.. that was pretty spectacular to see. On some dives we saw a large napolean wrasse, and some large whitetip, blacktip, and grey reef sharks - all of which eluded photos.
