The Orchid, February 2003

In February 2003 I decided I needed a break and decided to try and clock up a few more dives. The idea of a liveaboard apealed to me so I booked a holiday on the Orchid.

I was also in need of a new digital camera, so I bought one that I could get an underwater housing for and took it for a test drive at the bottom of the Red Sea :o).

As well as the underwater photos listed under dives below, there are also some photos of the marina, the people, some landscapes, some sunsets, the hotel we stayed in on the last night, and selection of my personal favourites out of all of the photos :o)

The links on this page have a number in brackets which specifies how many photos are in that link. If you want to print any of the photos off, please let me know and I will send you the original files, as the pictures on this site have had to be reduced in quality due to file size limits. I hope you enjoy looking at the photos as much as I enjoyed taking them :o)

And if you have the time and you know your fish, feel free to check the names I have put in and even better let me know the ones marked {unknown}. I am not that up on my fish names :o)
