Photo and video show Oceano Mare in Riccione, Friday, March 23


Friday 23 of march will be held the sixth edition of the photo-video show OCEANOmare.

As in previous years the polisportiva Sub Riccione has organized an evening dedicated to the knowledge of the seas of the world through the vision of movies made by divers with  international reputation.

These are the protagonists of the show:

  • Attilio Rinaldi

During the evening will be also possible to view an exhibition of photographs made by “amateurs” photographers, where there will be some of my photos 🙂

Coral finder: a new way to identify corals!


Coral Finder is a new tool to quickly identify corals, in practice it’s like a “pocket” version of  the famous “Corals of the worls” by J.E.N. Veron, but presented in a simple way and perfect to identify every coral.

The 7 kg of 3 books “Corals of the World” condensed into just 35 pages… they’re obviously two different products, but the Coral Finder is proposed more as an operational tool, directed not only to us hobbyists, but also for divers, since it is plastic and it’s possible also purchased as accessory even a magnifying glass suitable for use under water.

Diving in Red Sea, pictures and videos


Also this year we were in the beautiful Red Sea, and once again in Marsa Alam, how could you read the Report on Sol Y Mar Dar El Madina, where thanks to the superb diving Sea World and especially to the two guides that I was lucky once again to have by my side, Andrea Maffi and Roberto Piazza, I made some great diving.

This year, I had the new Canon S90, now superseded by the new S95 to tell the truth, with Canon housing and especially with the  external flash Sea & Sea Ys01 that, I have to admit it made a difference in most of the photos .

This video is a summary of all the best pictures I’ve done, horizontals, for video limitations I could not put vertical pictures. The video has been prepared in high definition, so enjoy it in full screen … it worth a while! Then I’ll look forward for your comments that forced me to share these beautiful photos.

Seven photographs were the subject of the photo exhibition held in the event OCEANO MARE:

The beautiful helicopter … a beautiful Pterois volitans

Immersioni in Mar Rosso, Marsa Alam: foto e video


Anche quest’anno siamo stati nel bellissimo Mar Rosso, ed ancora una volta a Marsa Alam, come avete potuto leggere dal Reportage sul Sol Y Mar Dar El Madina, dove grazie al magnifico diving Sea World e soprattutto alle due guide che ho avuto la fortuna ancora una volta di avere al mio fianco, Andrea Maffi e Roberto Piazza, ho fatto delle splendide immersioni.

Quest’anno poi accanto a me c’era la nuova Canon S90, oramai soppiantata dalla nuova S95 a dire il vero, con lo scafandro Canon e soprattutto con il flash esterno Sea&Sea Ys01, che devo dire ha fatto la differenza nella maggior parte delle foto.

Questo video è un sunto di tutte le foto più belle che ho fatto, a patto che fossero orizzontali, visto che per limitazioni del video, non ho potuto inserire foto verticali. Il video è stato preparato in alta definizione, quindi divertitevi a vederlo a tutto schermo… merita! Aspetto poi con ansia i vostri commenti che sono la molla che mi spinge a fare e condividere queste bellissime foto.

Sette foto sono state oggetto della mostra fotografica tenuta nella manifestazione OCEANO MARE:

Il bellissimo elicottero… uno splendido Pterois Volitans

Marsa Alam – House Reef – night diving – English Version


During our last holiday in Marsa Alam we also had the fortune to dive in the night straight from the dock of our resort, a place called House Reef.

It was my first night diving, and although the sea was very rough was an unforgettable experience to be repeated as soon as possible (I’m already waiting for the next trip to Egypt in fact)

House Reef

We have to thank once again the structure of the diving SeaWorld and in this particular case we have to thank especially our guide Roberto Piazza that made us not only as a guide but there has been the godfather of this our first night dive, after a briefing longer than usual, with the appropriate equipment we went down loads of expectations!

Marsa Alam – Abu Dabbab – English Version


Abu Dabbab is probably the most beautiful bay of Marsa Alam, Red Sea, which has recently also become a protected natural park by the Egyptian government. So it is obligatory to pay a fee to visit this beautiful lagoon.

Abu Dabbab

As you can see in the picture by satellite, which you can click to go to Google Maps, the lagoon is huge, with very fine sand. On the right stands the hotel complex Sol Y Mar Abu Dabbab. The Reef to visit are placed on two sides of the lagoon, both starting from the shore, the left reef is the most attractive (or at least so say the guides) and is probably the finest of Marsa Alam, from what I saw .
