” This image was taken on a dive at Coconut Point, Christmas Island. I had descended much deeper than the rest of the group, and luckily was ahead of them. I was using a fish-eye lens and had to get quite close to these gorgonian fans while being beneath them, and looking up the reef wall to the surface. There were lots of small anthias and other fish congregating over the fans, which were unafraid of me, despite being so close. Maybe it was because I was calm and hardly breathing and therefore not emitting many bubbles… Anyway, it all made up for a good image. I returned to Christmas Island in 2012, but did not dive this site again; apparently cyclones passing nearby had smashed much of the reef in this area, presumably the shallower reef… but I know from my experience that this sort of damage can extend surprisingly deeply on Christmas Island because the waves’ energy can be reflected in all directions off the steep limestone walls, creating surges in current that extend deeply. I hope this reef survived.”
