Coral bommies dot most of the dive sites in Turks & Caicos. This one attracted my attention because of its shape and the beautifully colored purple rope sponges complimenting the typical azure blue of this part of the Caribbean.

I came across this neon goby sitting out in the bright sunlight and decided to make him look like he might be floating on a cloud, rather than sitting on hard coral.
