Pictures of a diver in a school of fish, in the backlight and a safety diver in white shark territory of Dyer Iceland, South Africa.The photos were taken at the Ras Mohammad in the Sinai, at the drop off of the Namena Barrier Reef on Fiji and off Dyer Island in South Africa. In the first two places, the
underwater visibility was very good and the water temperature was pleasant. While diving off Dyer Island or in the False Bay near Cape Town, a dry diving suitis certainly the better choice. Even with a 7 mm semi-dry diving suit you are freezing within a short time. According to the season, the underwater temperatures range between 9Â°C and 16Â°C. Due to the often strong swell and the plancton-rich water, the horizontal visibility under water ranges between a few centimetres and eight metres. It is said that there are also âblue waterâ days and a visibility between 12 and 15 metres, but unfortunately, that was never the case with me. Even though I have already been there at different times during winter (mostly three to four weeks), I had a maximum horizontal visibility of eight metres only on one single day. Fortunately, at this time the White Sharks were there and I was able to take the photos I had waited for years. In this case, all previous bad-weather days were quickly forgotten.
