'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.

Took a trip to Truk Lagoon, amazing place with some amazing scenes.
Gas Mask within one of the wrecks just one of the reminders of the loss of life.
