When yours plans change for reasons beyond your control, it's not always bad. Sometimes it becomes the beginning of amazing stories ...
We were already on Sakhalin Island and were waiting to be sent to Moneron. But, the terms of our trip have shifted several times. Well, you can not just sit and wa
This year I had the first experience of night diving in the lakes of our strip. After trying once, we went to them every day, despite the cold water and hordes of mosquitoes on the shore. We found the remains of the old bridge at the bottom of the Valdai Lake. The fish kingdom is thickly overgrown w
Of course, we are talking about sea sponges, very unusual and important creatures. They can be found in many water bodies around the globe. Do not think that we are talking only about the tropical seas. You can see them and much to the north. And even in our freshwater lakes.
In the tropics, the sp
I'll return to the story about the island of Bonaire , which was started and never told. And to be more precise about diving there.
Two things attract divers divers and water diving.
Almost the entire coast of the island is marked and described dive sites. And there are six dozen of them here.
I returned from another trip to the Valdai National Park. This year the sixth year of our cooperation with the Park has already started. And five years we dive there at about the same dates in June. In this regard, facebook was full of photographs-memories. Moreover, we go there by the same team ea
No, here there is no conspiracy theory. And secret research here is nothing to do with. Peoples just need salt. A lot of salt.
Therefore, on the island of Bonaire, part of the territory is occupied by huge artificial salt lakes. Where regulary pumped seawater from the sea. Then, under the action o
I came back and brought new photos and a history. I have not seen most of the photos so far, so this is just the beginning.
In the south of the Caribbean lost a small piece of Holland. Island of Bonaire. Being much to the south of the main centers of the region, it does not attract many tourists.
Pinnipeds were one of the main themes of photo-shooting for our group in the Far East each year.
Unfortunately in the first expedition the weather did not allow us to get to the rookery of Steller sea lions on Sakhalin. And we were satisfied with only a few pictures of one individual near the sh
Many of us have heard of huge red king crabs (in the far east they are called Kamchatka crabs). But very few people actually saw them alive. Most people get acquainted with crabs when they start to eat them, or cook for a salad.
In a living or at least inseparable form they are usually seen only
The promised second part of the story. And it's talking about red fish. And if it is more accurate then about sockeye salmon.
For sockeye we traveled almost from the first day of stay on the island. But what about: bright red, with pronounced features, and in size it is larger than pink salmon.
Let's go back to the stories about the Commanders)
This story will be in two parts, because as we went along the island to look for a place for photography, we found two different stories at once. Both are beautiful, and both are red.
Although cloudberry, which will be discussed, was not all red
Finally, in our area it became warm and sunny. Birds returned and sing in full. Grass with leaves are very young and green. And this is a sure sign that you can open a new season of diving in our band. The water is of course still cold. But this is not the worst thing. The main thing is that every
