Underwater Photo Contest Entries From The Bismarck Sea

Underwater photo contest

Peoples' Vote


First trip to PNG, I suspect not my last. The trip redefined unspoiled and diverse life.  Abounding fish populations added to the wonder.  Tried a number of occasions to convince myself to switch to my 100mm but the wide-angle was just too good!

Witch Doctor —  Barney’s Reef, Fathers Reef, Papua New Guinea
A barrel sponge festooned with dozens of colorful crinoids.  Taking a hard upward angle allowed me to capture a small sliver of the reefs fish population.

Sometimes I find myself looking for the extraordinary when I am taken back by the simplistic. This image captures the latter in a small grouping of a barrel sponge, crinoids and anemone which collectively endow a variety of texture, shape and color.
