I love using photos of large colonies as inspiration. Particularly Lambeh Straits, gorgeous examples of Euphyllia corals iin huge formations

Some of the best shallow reef/bommie footage I've seen in a long time! So clear, vivid and bright! 😎1022494373_Maldives-AriNorth-MaayafushiHouseReefSnorkeling1.thumb.jpg.64a8e9c4c88b8bf7c4d2696d2d1379ce.jpg

This video pretty much just gave me the worst FOMO ever. I want to be there right now, diving that shallow reef, so bad!
