Light From Above

Light From Above

Papua, Indonesia

Even with Underwater Photography (my true passion),
the light can be perfect. Usually, I have to
take my own light (two strobes) down with me, but
on this occasion, the perfect blend of ambient light
and artificial light made for a nice photo.
The photo was taken at a very unique dive location
in Papua, called "The Passage". Near the surface of
the water, are huge fan corals, and just above the
water is the jungle. Hard to believe your are in the
Ocean.
