Just 2 days ago we arrived back home from our dream holiday; the Maldives! White beaches, crystal clear waters, waving palm trees… And an absolutely wonderful underwater world. Special thanks to ProDivers for making these dives happen!
I’ve made so many pictures I’m going to add them in smaller groups this time.
Here you see a porcelain shrimp, two eagle rays, a turtle, a beautifully posing mantis shrimp, a sea urchin, a small peaking fish, a lionfish and a baby yellow-mouth moray eel.

Enjoy the pictures!
The last time we visited TODI my ear didn’t equalize well, with a nasty ear infection as a result. For a few weeks my hearing and balance was disturbed, which was a real nuisance. Luckily, my ear wasn’t damaged and everything healed perfectly!
With everything functioning as it should, Mark took a day off from work and we went to TODI on a weekday (wednesday’s my day off, yay!) to say hi to the fishes.
After waddling through traffic we plunged in and almost immediately our little puffy friends wiggled up to me! I don’t know if it was my new devil-horned cap or if they just like me, but all puffers followed me around all 76 minutes of our dive. I like you too, buddies! 🙂
A lot of fish were guarding the eggs, so I didn’t disturb them for too long. I shoo’d a little brat who thought it was funny to scrape off the eggs from a rock with his fins. So I scored a little karma on the way, too.
Anyway, enjoy the photos from this dive and feel free to leave a comment!
A few weeks ago, I first met these little happy-faced cuties. Back then they swam away from you as soon as you laid your eyes on them.
BUT NOT TODAY!
December in the Netherlands! The month of celebration, low temperatures, snow, and…. my birthday. Time to flee!
We have the untraditional tradition to celebrate my birtday together, without friends and family. Last year we didn’t have the opportunity to do something fun, so this year we decided to REALLY celebrate by going back to Egypt.
Earlier this week TODI added some puffer fish to their – already huge – collection of fish! So… we decided to pay them a visit. They’re a bit quicker than their cousins in Egypt, so it was quite a challenge to capture them.. but YAY, I managed to do it!
Photo collection of our latest trip to Marsa Alam, Egypt. We’ve made a total of 20 dives and from the 1500+ photos I’ve made, I think these were the prettiest.
Enjoy the pictures and feel free to leave a comment!
When we’re not diving in warm water and the Dutch waters are too cold for a wetsuit, we love to go diving in the indoor diving center TODI in Beringen, Belgium. It’s an ideal place to practice skills and make some great fish face portraits.
