Every diver is as happy as a coral when he has managed to take a good underwater photo.
Bah, we've decided this is old hat!
Well, admittedly that doesn't work everywhere.
(I'm just imagining what you would see if you took a picture of the Main or Lake Constance from above.)
But here, on the east coast of Moorea, it's absolutely amazing.
One of the most beautiful "shallow water" coral gardens imaginable.
I drifted over it in the dinghy and simply took pictures from the boat, from above, into the water with a normal SLR camera. Whaaaaaaah!
