When you think about marine life, reptiles probably aren't the first thing that comes to mind. But turtles, crocodiles, snakes and lizards all take to the sea - and images of some of them can be found here. Divers spend most of their time in the ocean, but sometimes lakes and rivers can offer equally good or even better diving. How about an old tugboat, a flooded forest or some pink river dolphins? I'm catching up on the backlog of images that needs to be edited and prepared for the ScubaPixel database, and tonight I did a bunch of images from my wonderful trip to Gozo in July 2012. The Scubapixel database has been updated with almost 70 images from Croatia. The Adriatic Sea offers surprisingly good diving, with vividly colored gorgonians and interesting marine life. The Scubapixel database has been updated with 60+ images, many of the from a trip to Sveggvika Dive Resort in August 2012. The area offers great diving - have a look here! The wreck of the 65 ft. tugboat S/S DÃ¸len at the outlet of Norway's biggest lake MjÃ¸sa is a beautiful freshwater experience. Several new images have been added to the database. Spring is the time for breeding, mating and reproduction. Our northern seas comes to life for a few hectic summer months, and hormones rule both depths and shallows alike. After the Nudibranch Safari at Gulen Dive Resort in March 2012, I have plenty of new nudibranch images. Over the last few days I have added 50+ new images to the database. Echinoderms are a strange breed of animals. Their bodies show a five-sided symmetry, and they rely on a unique system of tube feet and fluid-filled canals for locomotion. Check out the images! Divers are travelling like never before, and magazines are filled to the brim with underwater images that convey the feeling of 'being there'. But sometimes it's the topside images that add the extra spice! I have updated the database with 70+ land and underwater images from the island of CuraÃ§ao in the Caribbean - shot on different locations during the CuraÃ§ao Dive Festival in 2008. Diving in muddy conditions is perhaps not what most divers crave, but it gives an interesting angle on marine life - and some unique images. Check out the latest from Gullmarn on the Swedish west coast! Is it still possible to be creative when visiting a divesite for the umphteenth time? I have added more images from my seventh trip to lake LygnstÃ¸ylsvatnet to the ScubaPixel database. I have now added 110+ images from my trip to Malta and Gozo last year to the ScubaPixel database. Feel free to enjoy spectacular wrecks and caves, colorful macro life and topside images. At Gulen Dive Resort, visiting divers can help maintain a healthy house reef by throwing trash in the underwater recycling bins. And believe me, it's become popular! In 2009 I got the unique opportunity to dive on the wreck of an over 800 year old log boat, days before it was salvaged for conservation. Check out the images in the ScubaPixel database. Clownfish of anemonefish are one funny breed of fish. Well known from the animated movie "Finding Nemo", they continue to attract the attention of divers and non-divers alike. I have added more images to the database - this time from a trip to the Philippines in 2008. The images are from Malapascua and Alona Beach, Panglao. The database is now updated with over 120 images from the Cape Verde islands, including some stunning cave images, macro life and some topside turtle conservation images. VesterÃ¥len in the northern part of Norway offers stunning nature and great diving opportunities. The database is now updated with images from this area. The Clione limacina, known as Sea Angel, is surely one of the most beautiful creatures found in the oceans. The ScubaPixel database contains 12 images of this illusive creature. Lake LygnstÃ¸ylsvatnet came into existence in 1908 after a big landslide closed off the river Lygna and flooded the valley - and a unique divesite was born. Check out my new images! My easter trip 2009 went to Gulen Dive Resort on the Norwegian west coast. There were lots of nudibranchs to be found along with lots of other small stuff. Check out the images! In January 2009 I got a chance to visit the Genova Aquarium, and I have added some images from this visit to the database. Check out my images of the very cool jellyfish tanks! Hitra on the Norwegian west coast is known as one of the best diving destinations in Norway, and offers great kelp forests, wrecks and an incredible diversity of marine life. Check out the images! I have added more images from my two trips to the Farasan Banks in Saudi Arabia. The database now contains over 240 images from this pristine and rarely dived destination. I have added some images of the great kamchatka crab Paralithodes camtschatica to the database. Dare to go eye-to-eye with this giant russian predator here on ScubaPixel! The ScubaPixel database now holds 30 new images from a trip to the islands of RemÃ¸y and Runde, south of Ã…lesund on the Norwegian west coast. Enjoy kelp forests and colorful macro life!
More images of the rare Palio dubia nudibranch has been added to the image database, making the nudibranch selection even more complete and bringing the total number of images over 300. Today, I have added 17 new images of the deep-sea jellyfish Periphylla periphylla - also known as the Alien of the Deep - to the image database. Enjoy this rare creature from the abyss!
Today, I have added 40 new images from the island of Myken, just above the arctic circle on the northern coast of Norway. The area surrounding the islands is a pristine playground for divers. Caves and caverns are among the most exciting places divers can explore. The beautiful light in the openings make this a very special experience - and now you can share the feeling in the ScubaPixel database. I have added more manatee images to the database, which now counts 25 images of these cute, cuddly seacows. The images are from Crystal River, Florida and were shot on a trip in 2006. To make it easier to search for images on ScubaPixel, I have added several search shortcuts under the Images tab on top of the page. Please take a look and discover lots of great new images! I have added a few images from the Maldives to the ScubaPixel database. Not many - they are some of my first underwater images, shot with an Olympus C5050-Z compact camera.
