Bima, a small port in the far end of our world, seldom sees foreign visitors. These shots capture the life on a jetty in Indonesia. All the workers, fishermen, and bystanders gave us curious looks as we boarded our dive yacht, Arenui, with our dive gear and luggage. I wonder what was going through their minds. We really had a lot of “stuff” with us. We really are lucky to be able to experience the world with so much more comfort than others.
The bright yellow feather star capped this reef like a crown. Practically every inch of this rock was covered with invertebrate life - hydroids, sponges, tunicates, and more feather stars. It’s no wonder the Coral Triangle is such a popular dive destination. The marine biodiversity and beauty of the underwater scene in the region is simply stunning.
