INTERLUDE...

POLYNESIAN FISH - SEPTEMBER 2004

This post is a pause in people's tours to show some fish travel...


"BASIN - The Intercontinental has a basin where they feed some tropical fish and reproduce some corals. One of the days, Jean-Pierre decided to photograph most of the existing species, and I chose some of the photos to show here!"

sheeeshhh u got some great shots!!! I love the pic fifth one down and that rainbow looking fish is crazy unusual! How lucky to have seen these in such clear waters

Mandi said...

I agree with Kala these are awesome shots. The sea looks so clear and the fish are beautiful. I can't believe the colour of the sea it's stunning.

guida said...

My goodness! Aren't they beautiful these photos??? I can almost say they are better than reality... And I was there when they were done!

Very clear and so beautiful. I like the 5th and the 9th in that sequence.
Thanks for sharing.

Lovely, lovely, lovely...wonderfully captured shots!
Hats off to your photography.

Thanks everybody!
The fish were nice and the sea water was clear, but actually there is a trick: the hotel keeps the fish in a basin with sea water but no direct connection with the sea. Tourist trap...

Yeah, purple. Is that for real? I'd love to see purple coral. But nasty hoteliers.

Trotter said...

It's purple/blue Meg, but purple anyhow...

I have always wanted to visit this place. Thank you for the wonderful photos - of course, it isn't as good as being there, but right now it is better than being here, in the snow. Yes, sadly, they've announced that it will snow again today.
