I love the incredible beauty of our natural world, particularly our aquatic ecosystems. My life goal is to share the sea with as many people as I can possibly reach through images, writing, and music. "No ocean, no life. No blue, no green."

About this picture

Raja Ampat, Indonesia is one of the most spectacular locations for diving in the world, especially during bait fish season. The reefs are already some of the most lush and pristine anywhere on the planet, but in October, every underwater scene is graced by the presence of millions of little silversides shoaling together en masse. The schools can be so thick they blot out the sun, or in this case, envelope a diver in a tornado of fins and scales.
