Hello All

i thought i would post a few pics taken at Layang Layang Resort Malaysia. we came over here for the 3rd annual underwater shootout and to get in some diving . Layang is a coral Atol and is located in the south china sea and is surrounded by 2000m deep waters .
its my last day here so im off gasing at the moment befor our flight back to Australia, we had a mixed bag of diving conditions from 40m+vis and flat seas on the first day to rain choppy sea and 20m vis ,

layang has awsome unspoilt diving huge fans and barrel sponges , 45m vertical walls and coral gardens , we had baracuda Jacks white tiped reef sharks and turtle .
anyway here are a few shots .
just click on my flickr page for more

thanks for the kind words all

we had a very nice trip , with a few bumps along the way , like having my laptop stolen from our room at the Hyatt in Kota Kinabalu !!!

the diving was exelent at Layang Layang at first but the conditions droped a bit as the 2 weeks progressed .,

we competed in the shootout and my wife got places in macro and wideangle . here are a few of my macro photos i put in , i was quite happy with them .
