Floating above the Fans by Karen Willshaw

From down underneath the corals at Fan Wall, aptly named for the pristine Gorgonian Fan corals that cascade down the steep wall into the depths of the Indian Ocean. This beautiful dive site is located on the Cocos (Keeling) Islands, an external territory of Australia and little known diving paradise.

I’m one lucky lady who lives on a remote tropical island in the middle of the Indian Ocean. Inspired by the surrounding beauty above and below, I took up photography as a hobby several years go. This has now turned out to be an all consuming passion, driven by the desire to promote the Cocos (Keeling) Islands the only way I know, through my eyes and lens.

    Somehow you managed to compose this so that it’s like a graceful dance of divers and corals!

  • Thank you so much Bette. Believe me, the divers just happened to be in the right place at the right time and all looking quite tidy in the water LOL
