After Cambodia and the temples of Angkor, we headed for the south of Thailand. So much for the chronology of the story... I switch directly to underwater mode, with my first underwater video: a coral-eating turtle, in Phi Phi Leh.

Beneath the surface

You ran out of bubbles? I was, too.

After these few days in Cambodia, I was looking forward to arrive on the Andamane coast, in Thailand. To see the blue sea, to jump in the water, to breathe again in my regulator, to play with my 7D and its subwoofer under the surface, to find small and large underwater creatures ...

I only did two dives on Koh Phi Phi. (I dedicated myself to diving the following week, during a cruise to the Similan Islands...) But the first splash off the island of Phi Phi Leh was more than nice, with the encounter of a not shy turtle.

It was a perfect opportunity for me to refamiliarize myself with the camera's settings underwater, to switch from photo to video mode and vice versa.

The turtle has been more than cooperative. In fact, far too busy with his meal to be distracted by our bubbles... An easy and rewarding dive, on a piece of reef full of life. What could be better for a re-fins?

Tortoise. Phi Phi Leh, Thailand. February 2011.

Thank you, Turtle lady!
