Beautiful photos captured by Durban-based photographer Kevin Sawyer while diving at Ponta Do’ Ouro in Mozambique over Easter.

We’re lucky to have such a diverse range of scenic places to visit and photograph in Southern Africa, and the beautiful shores and seas of Mozambique is just a short trip away. Durban-based photographer Kevin Sawyer went diving at Ponta Do’ Ouro over the Easter weekend, and shared these great underwater photographs with us.

Kevin shot the photos with a Canon 5D Mark II and a Canon 15mm f/2.8 fisheye lens, protected inside a custom underwater housing built by Stuart Donkin. All shots were captured with available light.

“I recently visited Mozambique over the past long weekend and went scuba diving at Doodles dive site in Ponta Do’ Ouro. I captured some really amazing images of the reef as we were lucky to have great visibility.

“Doodles dive site is approximately 15 to 17 metres deep, and offers an amazing diving experience, especially for open water divers as it is shallower than 8 metres. With a large variety of marine life on the reef, including game fish, potato bass, moral eels, cctopus and rays, the reef is by far the busiest reef in Ponta Do’ Ouro, as well as only being about a 10 minute boat ride away. The reef consists of mainly sandstone with majority soft corals and sponges.”
