Kate Jonker lives and works in the seaside town of Gordon’s Bay, just outside Cape Town, South Africa. Just on Africa’s east coast, the area is incredibly diverse with colorful, unspoiled reefs which hug the rugged coastline of False Bay.
Reaching depths of between 7 and 30 meters, the marine-rich reefs are home to a dazzling array of macro critters large and small. A myriad nudibranchs, spider crabs, quirky fish, seals, smaller sharks, octopus, cuttlefish, pipefish and many other interesting creatures can be encountered on every dive in Gordon’s Bay.
The reefs are covered with colorful soft corals, feather stars, multicolored sea fans, sponges in every hue you can imagine, pink and orange noble corals and beautiful sea anemones.
Kate’s passion lies with macro photography and capturing the colorful and fascinating personalities that co-exist amongst the reefs in Gordon’s Bay.
