UW Photo Tips: High Key with black subjects on black sand

In Underwater Macro Photography black subjects are usually not as popular as coloured subjects. First because they tend to be less striking and second because they often cause the background to overexpose. So a lot of photos get deleted from harddrives because either the subject is too dark or the background is blown out. Exceptions ...

Lembeh Divesites: Tanjung Kubur

Tanjung Kubur is situated on the island side of the Lembeh Strait and is the southern side of a little Cape coming out north of the Kareeko Village. It shares that headland with Tanjung Tebal (out on the tip of the headland) and Aer Bajo 1 (on the opposite side). Tanjung means Cape or Corner and ...

Lembeh Divesites: TK1

The TK 1 is one of three Divesites on the northern Mainland Side of the Lembeh Strait. TK stands for Teluk Kembahu– Teluk is indonesian for “bay” and Kembahu is the name of the fishing village situated in this bay. The bay has a extremely black sandy beach and offers very attractive and productive muckdiving. ...

Lembeh Divesites: Aer Bajo

Aer Bajo is something like the Prototype of a Black Sand Muck Dive: No Corals, no Reef, no Topography …just a Black Sand slope with some Debris and Garbage. A Muckdiving Lover would say: A Perfect place. Aer Bajo is situated on the Island side and faces north from a little headland sticking out into ...

Lembeh Dive Sites: Rojos

Rojos is a Black Sand Muck Dive on the northern Island Side of the Strait. It is located in Between Batu Sandar and Angels Window – just next or half under a Pearl Farm. Besides some Coral Patches in the Shallows it is basicly just very fine (but not muddy) black sand with some small sponges ...

Communication between species

Communication in order to share information between conspecifics is very common in nature. Just think about male birds singing very loudly early in the morning with the dual purpose of telling conspecific males that this spot is taken as well as getting information through to the females what a hunk he is, or the male ...

Lembeh’s Deep South

On one of last week’s morning dives we went to the southern end of the Lembeh Strait to check out some divesites that haven’t  been visited for a while. The first dive we did at Wangurer – a black sand muck dive on the very southern mainland side of the strait. Basicly it is a ...

David the Jawfish vs. Goliath the Octopus

On one of yesterdays dives i witnessed one of these special moments i love the Lembeh Strait for. During a dive at Are Prang – a black sand muck dive on the mainland side – i found a long armed octopus peeking out of its whole in the sand. After taking some shots it slowly ...

Camouflage

Yesterday`s blog on Batesian mimicry got me started thinking (thus the big tank of air, brain activity requires oxygen!).  Batesian mimicry was about “parasitizing” on the true signal of something sending out an honest warning. This is a very special type of mimicry. Camouflage, where animals try to look like something more or less inedible, ...

How can a blob of jelly, such as an octopus, move?

Cephalopods belong to the large group of animals known as molluscs. Generally molluscs do not move well, and when they do, it is by either gliding over a slime track or by using their external shells. But not the cephalopods. Cephalopods move very quickly and with very precise movements when that is needed. Most animals ...
