Pic of the Day – Tiny Bubbles


For wide angle Wednesday, here’s an image of Mr G amidst percolating gas bubbles, taken at Sangeyang Island, in Northern Komodo, Indonesia.

Sangeyang is an active, simmering volcano. The island was evacuated several years ago, although a few brave souls remain in a rudimentary village, perched on its beautiful shore.

We did a couple of dives with these “champagne bubbles”, at a site called Hot Rocks. It was pretty surreal – I am not aware of anywhere else in the world where divers can have this experience.

Nearby, there are also some “vents” where very warm water seeps up through fissures in the reef – which makes for some pretty groovy hand-warming stations ;^) And, it would appear that the critters like the jacuzzi too – this site was well populated with a cool cast of stuff, and the coral gardens in the shallows were lovely as well.

About Judy G Diver

Born and raised on the west coast of Canada, I have always felt a strong connection to the sea. But for many years, I stayed on the surface, afraid of what lurked down deep. When I was in my early 30's, with three young children (aka the P's), my husband (aka Mr G) signed us up for a SCUBA certification course, as a surprise. Although I had my fears, my stubbornness prevailed, and somehow I made it through four murky, frigid, cold water dives in Vancouver to successfully pass the course. Soon after we went diving off the west coast of Mexico, in the Sea of Cortez, where my eyes were opened to the beauty and other-worldliness of the life down under. And the rest, as they say, is history. I currently have well over 2000 dives under the belt, and I have been fortunate to travel and dive in Indonesia, Thailand, Australia, Fiji, Palau, Philippines, Galapagos, Costa Rica, Hawaii, California, Egypt, Mexico, several islands in the Caribbean, and here in British Columbia. In addition to this blog and my personal website (Awoosh.com/Directory), which is linked at the top of the blog, my stuff has been published in a variety of magazines and websites, including a regular monthly feature for Scubadiving Magazine for several years. All links to this work can be found in this blog.
