Photographer's Note

My third photo from flight to Sharm. This time you can see part of Ras Mohammed National Park. Great site for diving.

"Ras Mohammed is situated at the extreme southern part of the Sinai Peninsula. Here, where the Gulf of Aqaba meets with the Gulf of Suez the ocean floor drops down to depths of more than 1000 meter.

Here an underwater world has developed which is unique in the Red Sea. Due to the topographical position, there a strong currents throughout the whole year which are often hard to predict even for experienced divers.

However, it is exactly these currents which provide the reefs in the best possible way with the necessary nutrients. No other dive site in the northern part of the Red Sea offers as much of a variety and density of species as Ras Mohammed"
