When you’re new to (manual) photography, you have a lot to juggle at the same time: starting with the positioning and settings of your camera, not to mention your one or two strobes! Luckily, new underwater photography gadgets enter the market on a regular basis and the idea of using a ring light instead of a strobe or torch isn’t that new as such. However, the newly released Kraken Weefine Ring Light got us excited since it’s especially designed for macro photography. Let’s see what the results look like and how we rate the 1000 lumens strong, relatively inexpensive light.

The life cycle of fishes and other marine organisms is extremely complex and one blog entry is surely not enough to elaborate this topic.

Our guests Johan and Bets from the Netherlands have visited Lembeh in 2010 already.

A big thank you to Johan for some beautiful underwater pictures which he was happy to share with us in our guest gallery. Safe travels to the both of you and sampai jumpa lagi!

Happy Easter 2017 to all of you! Instead of the Easter Rabbit with white, fluffy ears, we’ve had a little tarsier visiting us. Not sure if he was hiding eggs though?
This morning we had a very uncommon “check in” at our Resort: While our Girls were making the rooms after the guests had left for diving they found this little guy jumping around in Room 5. We had a big group arriving yesterday and the morning staff had not met all of them before – ...

One consequence of this is that fear will be a prevailing emotional status in nature, as bold and brave animals will be caught and eaten much quicker ...
