Sipadan/Mabul, Borneo 09

Underwater pictures from a stay at SMART resort on Mabul in Sabah, Borneo. Dives were at Sipadan, Mabul, Kapalai and Si Amil. Avid spotter was Jojo, who found a lot of the hard-to-find stuff. The equipment was EOS 5D, EF 100/2,8 with Kenko 1,4X extender, EF 17-40/4 L and EF 15 mm FE (often with the extender) in an Ikelite housing with two DS 125 strobes.
