I dived this lo­ca­tion ev­ery week for much of a two-year ex­pe­di­tion to Pa­pua New Guinea, and I was drawn to this mas­sive gor­gonian co­ral by the com­bi­na­tion of strong colours and the 3D feel cre­ated by my ul­tra-wide lens. By day it shel­tered a shoal of tiny car­di­nal­fish. I had vi­su­alised many com­po­si­tions, but on this oc­ca­sion the car­di­nal­fish were rest­ing in a tighter ver­ti­cal shoal than I could have hoped for.
