    Thanks to Scubaboard for giving Taiwan it's own forum place - much appreciated by self and I know other divers in Taiwan.
    ------------

    As a first 'thread' in the Taiwan only new forum - here is an uneditted view taken without any zoom from a dive this morning, on a trip organised by Andy Gray in search of Scallopped Hammerheads -and we weren't disappointed. Breathtaking is an understatement, surrounded by these fantastic creatures, within a few metres cicling around, totally awesome.

    When back on the mainland, I'll select a few more of the many shots, and unless any of the other 16 on the trip beats me to it, I'll type a dive report, though how to explain this diving experience hard to put into words !

    Cheers

    Agreed.

    Here's a clip from my first attempt ever at underwater videography. Like Wantonmien's photo, this video is from the dive site Gun Shui Bi at Green Island, Taiwan on February 5. It's not exactly high-quality but it gives you a sense of what it's like to be circled by a group of 15 or more hammerheads:

    First, I too would like to say thank you to ScubaBoard for providing us with a Taiwan specific area to post. Second, words cannot describe the Green Island Hammerhead trip that we took over Chinese New Year. Great pic Peter and I look forward to the chance of diving with you again in the future.
