Gold Coast Seaway at Dusk

Wow, it's been a while. I've been busy with finishing uni and trips to Melbourne and Mon Repos... but that's not what I want to talk about here. I've just been for a dusk dive in the Gold Coast Seaway. It was far from the greatest dive ever, and I didn't get any of the stonefish mating I'd hoped for, but I still saw some interesting stuff. 

It was only about 2.5m vis, and a bit surgey, but I did manage to catch a flutemouth with my bare hands while surfacing :P
