Finding the right conditions to make a split shot, like this one takes time, luck, and patience. It must be a calm day so that it is possible to approach the delicate coral formations without getting tossed around by the waves; there has to be an interesting sky to color the upper part of the image, and most importantly, you have to find a piece of healthy coral reef, which is becoming increasingly difficult. I love making images like this one that celebrate the beauty of our oceans and remind us of how special coral reefs are. If you love this image, I also want you to have it for free so that you can use it as wallpaper on your digital devices. May it remind you that there is hope and that saving our planet’s coral reefs is worth fighting for. Go to the link on my bio to download this image. #wethereef @coralgardeners

Is this beautiful image still downloadable? When I go to link I can’t find it. I dabble in uw pictures & my first attempt was a pretty decent split shot (North Sea, off Northumberland coast, UK ) which I now know was a huge bit of luck. Never been able to do a half-decent one since! Which makes this image even more amazing to me. Thank you for all you do...🙏
