The cold winds have started picking up today here in Byron Bay, however, the swell has dropped some, and the vis was up to around 15m in some areas. The mantas are still hanging around, and as usual out at Julian Rocks, there’s more turtles and fish than you could poke a stick at. The grey nurse sharks are remaining elusive thus for however.
Everyone’s in a cheery mood, and most are enjoying as much diving as possible (with the exception of one unnamed photographer who forgot to take their lens cap off!). This afternoon we have a talk by local photographer Mark Grey on approaching wildlife, which given Mark’s amazing up close wide angle photographs, should be very interesting.
