LOCATION: Misool, West Papua
STORY: “This image had ben in my mind for many years – actually, in my sketchbook, where most of my photographs begin. And I had been keeping my eyes peeled for the right scene through thousands of dives in dozens of countries. And while I really don’t like answering the question of, “where’s your favorite dive location?”….well, wouldn’t you know, Misool does it again. It really is hard to beat this region, set right at the heart of the Coral Triangle, if you’re looking for massive biomass and biodiversity and a thriving reef ecosystem.
