The word ‘aqua’ (or very similar), means water in a whole bunch of languages, including Catalan, Corsican, Galician, Italian, Latin, Portuguese, Sardinian, and Spanish. And when I think of aqua, that is exactly what springs to mind. Although I see it from two perspectives. So here they both are for this week’s ‘aqua’ one word photo challenge.
First, there’s this way….
And then there’s this way…
Usually in quick succession, as soon as I’ve dumped my bags, got my dive gear together, and headed straight down to the dive centre.
As a scuba diver, ‘aqua’ will always mean warm seas and underwater adventures, even when I am an old lady and have long since dived my last dive.
These shots are both from Lankayan. For the ultimate ‘aqua’ it was a tough choice between the sparkling Maldivian seas, and the crystal clear waters around Lankayan. In the end, Lankayan won. It was so remote and exclusive that the diving was incredible. Only us in the water, and so much marine life and healthy reef to see. All in fantastic far-ranging visibility and bath-warm water. It is deservedly one of my favourite dive locations ever (yet!).
