These pictures were taken in January 2009 while on the dive boat Nautica. Our route took us from Phuket, Thailand to the Mergui Islands in Burma and back to Phuket.

All photos were taken with a Nikon D-70 digital SLR camera in a Nexus housing, Nikon 16mm, 20mm and 105mm lenses and two Sea & Sea YS-120 strobes.
