Photographer's Note

I travelled several times to Mauritius before deciding to live overthere for a year... I know,I'm a lucky one ! :-)

I dove at least 200 times with one of the best dive masters in Mauritius island : Hugues Vitry, very well known around the indian ocean for his passion for underwater fauna and flora. He is also a great photographer (I will try to convince him to suscribe on TrekEarth, I am sure you would appreciate his work) and one day he put a Nikonos III in my hands and...

Two years later I tried his Nikonos V and went with him to this very small underwater cave he showed me as a well kept secret, at around 23 meters depth. I was obliged to wait a little bit for the scorpion fish to leave the entrance (a poisonous one) and then I ramped in this cave and discovered these veils of gorgonias, one of them having a small shell on it. I took this picture and then ramped out with respect.

A well kept secret...
