Sea Fan -LaLou Reef Halmahera

Just back from a dive trip to Indonesia, spent a week at Weda Bay on the island of Halmahera.  This is a scene from one of the wall dives, a large sea fan with a school of Purple Anthias on the left side and a mixed school of fusiliers on the right.  Corals on these sites were in amazing condition

Nice image - I like the flowing line that the fish make within the scene

All the best
