    Quiet and cold start to the year in Gozo

    It's been a slow year to warm up so far, the water is still only 18c (20c at the surface) and we've had one of the coldest and wettest springs on record but the island is very green as a consequence and the diving has still been pretty bloody good.
    Below are a few shots above and below water from the last 4 or 5 months.

    May


    The Karwela stern


    The Xlendi wreck in the background and something that belongs in a muddy puddle in the foreground


    Convent above the main harbour


    Nudibranch via a lensball


    April
    Spring seed heads


    More lensball playing, Xlendi tower


    Fat scorpion fish


    Spectacular sunsets


    March
    Pyrosomes


    The squid have been busy


    February
    Big storms


    Great cloud formations over Malta


    Normally shy cornet fish and less shy wife


    Spectacular post sunset colours


    January
    Still plenty of fish


    Somewhat impaired vis during the January storms


    Xlendi wreck again


    and one from New Year's Eve


    If anyone fancies either being shown around the better dive sites on Gozo, or being photographed for posterity (I CAN make you look good ) then please drop me a PM

    The depth and colours on the "Spectacular Sunsets" photo are just stunning

    Thank you . The benefit of high humidity and vast quantities of Saharan sand in the air due to southerly winds.

    I quite agree, almost looks shopped.
    What is that thing with the free diver on the first photo?
    Paul.
    If God had meant us to breathe underwater, he would have given us larger bank balances.

    Not shopped at all I promise.

    That "thing" is sometimes called a feather boa, it's a colony animal similar to a salp chain but capable of giving a nasty sting. Still, it's very beautiful

    I'll accept "Git" but temper it with the amount I currently earn compared to what I used to be on.

    "I wish I was what I were when I wished I was what I am."

    Surely not!
