A couple of aerial shots from West Papua from my Phantom 4.

You can see our adventurers interacting with the Whale Sharks on the top image and the Bagan’s that are used to net up the bait.

This has become a viable industry for the region and at night time you can see a number of the Bagan’s all lit up attracting the small fish they then on sell for bait etc, as you will see in the bottom image.

The beauty of this industry is that they are now focused on the bait industry rather than hunting the Whale Sharks and in this area the Sharks are protected, so a good story all round really.

This image is very typical of the beautiful fans we saw in West Papua late last year on True North. The diving was pristine, clear and superb!

A 3 image stitch taken with the Olympus OM-D! Such a cool little camera and off the back of how impressed I have been with the OM-D I have just ordered 2 more for True North with a housing off Peta and Paul North at Camera Solutions.

I have only recently had a need to use the motor drive function on that camera and man oh man does that rock!
