Coral Reef Scene, Sea Fan

Good morning all, yes I know, long time!! Well, we have lots going on these days, we had the Smithsonian here for two solid weeks and that kept me busy around the clock plus we are crazy busy getting our house packed and ready to leave Curacao. I had to fly to Miami last week for one day to get us a car and put it in storage and then race back here the same day, that was one of the hardest things I have ever done. I’m still riding a lot trying to maintain my 100 miles a week but the weather has been really horrible!

Pillar Corals

Good morning readers, it’s almost weekend time! Today I have an insane colony of Pillar Corals for your viewing pleasure that I shoot on yesterdays dive. The conditions yesterday were close to perfect which is so import for those of use taking expensive electronics underwater and hoping to capture something beautiful. When I saw this from a distance it was like the heavens opened up and guided me to it and once there it was glowing with an almost spiritual light, it was really one of those dives I will never forget! Not sure if you can tell from the small photo but there are fish everywhere, this is what a healthy coral reef should look like, all I can say is “Wowzers”! Pillar coral forms an encrusted base from which grow vertical cylindrical, round-ended columns
