Some of Milos’ most beautiful beaches are only accessible by boat plus sailboats can be rather photogenic subjects themselves. When we stopped on the beautiful white sculpted rock formations of Gerontas, I took my camera fitted with my widest lens and applied some detergent on the dome. Most people headed for some jumps from the rocks, but I went on a hunt for some over/under shots of caves and rock formations. I saw a good photo-op of the divers with the sailboat in the frame, while the position of the sun made for a nice silhouette shot. The sea surface was also cooperative on this one. I was happy how this captured well our time in Milos: pure joy at sea.

Break on Through!

Humpback whales are enormous creatures — about the size of a school bus. They are graceful and powerful swimmers and like to breach out of the water with amazing acrobatic abilities, landing with a tremendous splash as seen here in Vava’u, Tonga.


Whale sharks are the largest fish on the planet, reaching up to 14m in length and weighing up to 12 tons. They eat a variety of stuff but thankfully for most sea-dwellers —and us— their favourite meal is plankton. They scoop these tiny plants and animals up, along with any small fish that happen to be around, with their colossal gaping mouths while swimming close to the water’s surface. This one was shot in South Ari Atoll, Maldives.


Don’t worry the fishes are fine! They’re pilot fishes – or to be precise in this case Golden Trevallies. They help the shark navigate and keep clean in exchange for scraps and protection. Lemon sharks can grow upwards of 3m (11ft) in length, weigh about 100kg (220lbs) and they have very sharp teeth as shown in this picture shot at the Bistro, Beqa Channel, Fiji.


This Hawksbill turtle was so chill as it cruised slowly, I followed it for a bit, losing track of time as I observed it in Moalboal, Philippines.
