Music of the Sea

Moonlight shines down into the shallow waters, brightening coral, sparkling over the rippled sand floor. As divers take on ascending depths, all the fish scatter behind. Briefly, the waters are empty. And then creatures appear in the distance, seeming to waver in the shifting current. They scuffle forward, kicking up clouds of sand.

Night dive is truly intriguing. Yet, divers often miss a lot of what happens on a reef at night. Light from the torch interplay with tweaking sound of quietness make us witness the glowing colors of nature in diverse dimensions. Picturesque plunge in a pitch black dark of the undersea appears before diver’s eyes as if spicy romance of ordinary marriage become, re-defined.

The underwater scenery acquires a complete different outlook when we go night diving. The absence of light gives pleasant-sounding feel to the panorama of the sea. Many creatures invisible during the day comes out for their prey. Colors of the reef are much more intense as we explore and nocturnal are there to present.

Music has upbeats and downturns, so does what happen at night and day. When diving in darkness, things are eccentrically limited; visibility, sounds, equipment functionality. Nevertheless a diver would never have one whole of diving experience in the underworld should he misses such a flow.

Divers, alert and vigilant, stare out toward shore. The island reveals nothing but blackness. There comes scurrying sound, wetsuit and tanks scraping against boat. The divers jump.

They listen, .. intently nothing but the richness of the dark blues.

Here comes the blues,

.. here comes the blues.
