"Glass Fish Reef"


Critters@Lembeh and Lembeh Resort are sponsoring a 9 night dive package and a 10% discount for a companion.

The Story: As we descended onto the first pinnacle at the four Kings dive-site we saw that the reef was covered in baitfish. Tuna & Jacks were actively hunting, causing the Cardinalfish too tightly hug the reef. I framed the shot with the seaman as the focal point using the baitfish as the foreground & background. The extremely high density of fish was amazing the witness as they all moved as one mass to avoid predation. I shot up, against the sun but hiding it behind the reef to create silhouette of the main reef allowing the beautiful reds of the sea fan to pop. It was an amazing dive, full of energy and I feel captures the essence of Raja Ampat
