    There’s wonderful depth in that shot, Norbert… the rays of the sun in the background highlighting the coral, and the fish suspended in the foreground. It really is a magical garden down there.

  • Thank you Gary. This photo was made in a bay with 15.000 Hotel beds in a depth of five meter. Unbelievable but true!
