Unterwater colours around Tavolara island/ Colori marini d isola Tavolara

Since 1997 the costal area reserve around island Tavolara (called "Area naturale marina protetta Tavolara - Punta Coda Cavallo") exists and promotes the protection&care of the amazing biodiversity underwater as well as above the water. The underwater world can takes one breath away, when one takes the time to looks into the holes and check the tiny details for hidden treasures...The octopusses are not afraid and look curious at you, the moray eel shows off its nice colours, the hermit crab and the colourful slipper lobster came down the wall to greet us!


 
A great starting point for a snorkelling or diving trip is the cozy village Porto San Paolo. If you need a diving club, then dont look any further but pass by Luana&Giorgio at Diving center Porto San Paolo .

Jana, I'd know you nowhere even wearing red flippers! What colorful underwater shots. Amazing! PS Wish I could collect wildflowers in the Alps - you lucky gal.13veyesti

My first reaction when I saw the photo of the octopus was... WOW. JUST WOW. I'm a diver too and I'm always amazed by the wonders underwater.

By the way, your photos are so clear. What underwater camera are you using? :)

The octopuc is just amazing. Isn't he dangerous?

Greetings,
Filip

Jana said...

thanks so much for this great feedback!!!
@Erika: just back today...
@Koryn: indeed the visibility around Tavolara is mostly fantastic; however water was around 20-22 degrees; I do use Canon G12 in underwater housing plus one flash;
@Filip: this octopus as the most octopuses is not dangerous; there is only one species (the blue-ringed octopus) who does attack/bite and brings a lot of health complications afterwards, this one is however found only in Australia though; my model on the picture was very friendly, I was just watching and he was smiling back/posing :-)

Cool! I'm thinking of buying an underwater cam too but still trying to decide if I should get one of them Lumix underwater cam or a point-and-shoot then equip it with an underwater casing.

It's a whole new world under the sea! great captures and colours and I like the last too - awesome flippers!

The aboriginal art in my post was part of an exhibition at our local art gallery. There were many pieces, all by male aboriginal artists from our region.

So many interesting and unusual creatures below us. They do well in camouflaging themselves
