It was great to finally get to meet South Africa's ragged tooth sharks (aka sand tigers) last week at Aliwal Shoals! The raggies are a bit more skittish than their American cousins, but still a joy to dive with! #sharks #sandtigershark #raggedtoothshark #underwater #underwaterphotography #wildlife #wildlifephotography #ocean #crystaldivers #nature #naturephotography #teeth #fish #travel #travelphotography #africa #southafrica #aliwalshoal #explore #adventure #conservation #conservationphotography #scuba #animals #getolympus #nauticam #olympusomd #olympusomdem1 #halcyondivesystems #maresjustaddwater

Currently in Scottburgh, Kwazulu Natal, South Africa. This is the view from our room as we wait for the weather to clear to start diving tomorrow. Looking forward to meeting South Africa's ragged tooth sharks! #southafrica #travel #travelphotography #kwazulunatal #beauty #beach #sand #water #clouds #explore #adventure #sharks #love #water #getolympus #olympusomd #olympusomdem1 #africa #waves

75 years ago today the German U-352 was sunk by the USCGC Icarus 26 miles off the coast of North Carolina. She now lies in 115ft of water, and is a favorite site for scuba divers. #history #uboat #u352 #coastguard #underwater #underwaterphotography #olympusdivecenter #explore #adventure #travel #travelphotography #northcarolina #blackandwhite #wwii #shipwreck #wreckdiving #scuba #scubadiving #nauticam #maresjustaddwater #halcyondivesystems #getolympus #olympusomd #olympusomdem1 #ocean

A week from today my husband and I will be diving off the coast of Kwazulu Natal, South Africa. One of the things I'm most excited about is meeting their 'raggies,' or what we call sand tiger sharks here in the U.S. They are the same species of shark (Carcharias taurus) but they live on opposite sides of the world. KZN has a large population of these sharks, just like we do off the coast of North Carolina. I guess you could call this a kind of sand tiger/raggie cultural exchange. ;) #sharks #sharksarebeautiful #sandtigershark #raggedtoothshark #underwater #underwaterphotography #ocean #wildlife #wildlifephotography #nature #naturephotography #travel #travelphotography #northcarolina #teeth #beauty #explore #adventure #explore #adventure #nauticam #animals #getolympus #olympusomd #olympusomdem1

Going back over some of the images I took of the U352 while diving North Carolina last September, and came across this one of my fellow divers enjoying the wreck with a few thousand of their closest fishy friends. #shipwreck #uboat #u352 #underwater #underwaterphotography #olympusdivecenter #fish #travel #travelphotography #northcarolina #wreckdiving #scubadiving #blue #history #wwii #nature #naturephotography #explore #adventure #ocean #beauty #water #nauticam #getolympus #olympusomd #olympusomdem1
