Saint John's reef in the Red Sea off the coast of Egypt

We decided to make a diving cruise to explore the reefs of Saint John during the coldest period of the year in the Red Sea. The water temperature is 23 degrees Celsius. It's 5 degrees below the temperature at the beginning of the summer and 7 degrees lower than in autumn. Because the fresh water, we hope to take pictures of silky or oceanic sharks. After a day of diving on the sites of Saint John which are certainly the most beautiful coral reefs in the Red Sea, the storm rages. It is accompanied by storms of exceptional violence. Underwater visibility is very poor due to strong winds that create large waves. The boat must hide to get protection against the winds.

It becomes impossible to take photos of scenery scenes because the poor visibility; sharks will remain a dream. Too bad, we must adapt our work. During the rest of the trip, we focus our work on the portraits and behaviors of fish. We are always in search of colors. We therefore prefer the colorful fish. After several dives, we notice that the sandy coves where the boat is anchored are full of life that we do not know. These small fish and crustaceans are not very colorful but the behaviors we observe are sufficiently interesting and unusual to take the time to photograph them. For each image, we must be patient because the fish are hiding in their burrows at the slightest vibration or the slightest shadow on the sandy bottom.

A work of patience and careful that will be rewarded by some beautiful shots.
