I was lucky to get out once more to take some pictures of some great underwater life in Wessex.The underwater world seemed slightly different from my recent trip to Cornwall.
Underwater life included: Spider Crab, Stingray, Lobster, Crab, Conga Eel(only blurry image, but it was quite large), Hermit Crab, a variety of fish, Lemon Sole, Seastar(one was even feeding on a seashell)

Having tried to identify one little creature I photographed last weekend in Cornwalls (south Coast), I assume I may have come across the Turritopsis dohrnii. This specific breed of jellyfish has developed a way to live forever by morphing back to its infant stage after reproducing, thus recreating its own lifespan.
Below you can see one:
Due to the second volcanic ash cloud, coming as a result of the eruption of Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull volcano, our return flights from Lanzarote have been delayed by seven days. This gave me more opportunity to take photographs, including shots from a nightdive and some exciting kite-surf stunts.
I love freediving and Lanzarote offers a lot of different places to explore the underwater world where you can find school of small to large fish, Angel Sharks, Stingrays, TriggerFish, Sepia and more.
One amazing location for freediving is a spot between Puerto del Carmen and Porto Calero. If you swim about 70 meters off shore, you can view 2 wrecks in around 20 meters depth. I have managed to take a panorama of both of these, which I will include in my Lanzarote Gallery.
