    Nice pics Puppy! Did Daniel take them while snorkeling? Or while SCUBA diving?

    Also - did EVERYONE notice how BROWN ALL the corals are?

    AND the depth which these pics were taken, cannot be more than 3 metres! Also - I do not see the BRIGHT sunshine in these pictures as everyone seems to think that corals live under?

    I guess I'm the only person that *doesn't* have a tank here. haha. Anyway, the sun was quite bright most of the time although I *think* that day was a little cloudy.. but more scattered clouds than anything significant. The water was particularly murky for some reason though. I was snorkeling just off the beach. No more than 1.5m max. Maaaybe 2. Mostly less than 1m depth. Sometimes you're worries the spiky corals will gouge your chest as you swim over, it's that shallow. Glad you enjoyed.
