Ghost Ship by Norbert Probst

Isn’t it a little spooky? Sunshine shows the shadow of the dive ship on sea surface. In front is a beautiful coral block with red soft corals and many fairy basslets (Anthias sp.) surrounded.

    That is a beautiful image in some amazingly clear water. I have heard this said about the Red Sea and its visibility.

  • Thank you Mark. Yes the Red Sea is constantly very clear. Especially the reefs off shore.
