'ABSTRACT' Often I am captivated with the colours, textures and shapes of our coral kindoms - beyond the sheer beauty of its free-swimming inhabitants as this image attempts to demonstrate. Housed Nikon F; 55mm auto-micro Nikkor lens.

On the deck of the Shinkoku, it took me ages to finally get the shot I really wanted. Was aiming to capture this little guy's head on but also capture the transulcent nature of the anemone.

Always an interesting situation to find common place element of a ship in a not so common place. This one was on one of the decks within the middle of the wreck, well away from the sides.

Spooky! The skull of a Japanese sailor who died in the engine room deep inside the Fujikawa wreck in Truk Lagoon. The blast caused the skull to meld with the surrounding metal in the egine room. Chahged it to B&W for better effect.
