Hop, we're off to Malaysia to dive in Sipadan... As an appetizer, I made it simple: a video, a shark, one minute.

White tip shark (coral shark)

I thought that this short shot of a shark (a harmless white tip reef shark) in the middle of corals full of life, would make a nice introduction, to start my series of articles on Sipadan

It's a "rough-cut" video, with no editing - with a white balance that pulls a little too much on the orange, but never mind. It gives a good idea of the atmosphere...

Funny: while rummaging through my impressive stock of images brought back from those dives in Sipadan, I came across this picture of me, which I had completely forgotten... It was taken by Vicente, a Spaniard who was in my palanque. It corresponds exactly to the moment when I shoot the little video shot above, with my 7D !

Hello, Vicente! There you go. Another one who loves pose with sharks from Sipadan

Sipadan III: the return of the revenge of the bubbles of the girl who takes underwater photos

Sipadan was the high point of this new trip to Borneo in July 2013. I was going back for the third time ...

And I was not disappointed, unlike Sangalaki and Maratua. So I keep Sipadan in my little top 3 staff of the best dive sites in Asia (with Raja Ampat and Komodo) !!!

To see the articles about my previous dives in Sipadan, in 2006 and 2009, this is here :

But note that in 2006 and 2009, I had not yet my 7D, for photos and videos. Neither the experience I have gained since, for the underwater shot. I was therefore REQUIRED to return to Sipadan for a third episode. I had to check my progress under water in the same context.

Very rewarding and very pleasant, I admit ...

But I'm really behind in my articles. We are already in mid-October and I rediscover, at the bottom of the hard drive, my images taken in July, full of sharks, turtles, barracuda swirls and jacks.

I evaluate them with a fresh eye. I sort, I dismiss, I select. It will still take time ...

However, I had already managed to put some online on the Facebook page, almost direct from the island of Mabul where I stayed (thanks to the mobile connection of an Indonesian diver, who had pity to see me row on the poor common wifi of the center). You can have a look, to wait.

More will be to be discovered (soon) in the next post !!!
