Dancing With Fishes.

While searching through my photos for something completely unrelated, I stumbled across these. These are some of my all-time favourite photographs.

These beautiful fish are Red Emperor’s, some of the best eating fish in the world. These guys were lucky enough to live under the pontoon on Hayman Island though, which is a Marine National Park. No fishing for them. Each day when we got back to the island from working on the boats we would feed them scraps left over from the day, and they would dance like crazy for their supper.

Their vivid colours flashing through the tropical water was truly magical, one of the best parts of living on an island.

Travel Theme: Beaches

How could I pass up on this awesome photo challenge, when I have been in search of the perfect beach my whole life. I moved to an island to be surrounded by beaches, for god’s sake. Thankyou once more to the awesome people who create these challenges and give me a reason to look through and reminisce over old photo’s.

In this case it is Where’s My Backpack providing the challenge today. _MG_4729Sunset at my former island home – Hayman Island, Queensland.  OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA  Boats on the ocean – Sihanoukville, Cambodia.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA My final sunset in a wonderful country – Kep, Cambodia
