Raja Ampat Islands, Located off the northwest tip of Bird's Head Peninsula on the island of New Guinea, in Indonesia's West Papua province, Raja Ampat, or the Four Kings, is an archipelago comprising over 1,500 small islands, cays and shoals surrounding the four main islands of Misool, Salawati, Batanta and Waigeo, and the smaller island of Kofiau
Manta rays are popular celebrities in Raja Ampat ! This is why they are often chased by underwater paparazzi gangs like one pictured on this shot. Actually during group dive at manta cleaning station everybody required to stay on the sand floor and keep low profile - if many people will start to swim simultaneously around manta rays will leave.
This is why I always prefer to dive in the very small group or just by myself with buddy - but it's not always possible - typical commercial dive these days happens in the group of 6 to 12 people.
I've used my photo of the Trevi Fountain in Rome I posted earlier and made a calendar wallpaper out of it. You can use it freely for your computer and even make copies for your friends, just let them know where you got it from.
Some people are bored of old fashion ground camping, and need to take it to the next level. Extreme Campers eat, sleep and to every other regular activity on mountain cliffs.
Hanging precariously in tents off a 4,000ft vertical cliff face wouldn't be most people's idea of the perfect camping trip. But these daredevils scale cliffs and pitch their tents thousands of feet up.
For my February Free Desktop Wallpaper Calendars, I've chosen two images that I really enjoy. First is a turquoise sunset in La Jolla, CA. Second is a chipper little winter chickadee, in Northeast Iowa. #calendar#wallpaper#photography
