Scuba diving at Batsata Rock – Flickr pic of the day


This colourful underwater image of a scuba diver was taken by our Cape Town. Live it. Love it. group member Jean Tresfon.

Jean says, “This image was taken about 20m underwater, on a reef about 200m to the east of Batsata Rock, which lies at the southern entrance to Smitswinkel Bay near Cape Point.

“This is a world-class dive site which is still mostly unexplored. It features huge granite boulders covered in pristine unbroken corals, with myriad fish species, large caves and overhangs.

“On the right day, with clean water in the bay, it is a photographer’s paradise with an explosion of colour wherever you look.

“The image is of my dive buddy Nick Cunningham-Moorat looking at one of the huge boulders covered with marine organisms, such as red-chested sea cucumbers, anemones, crinoids and soft corals,” he continues.

Do you have images of Cape Town you’d like to share with us? We’d love you to join the Cape Town. Live it. Love it. Flickr group!
