Just got back from another great week diving the spectacular wrecks in Chuuk aboard the ODYSSEY. Weather was a bit gloomy, but the diving was still top-shelf. This trip was spent exploring some of the deeper wrecks in the lagoon, such as the AIKOKU MARU, OITE, and NAGANO MARU. Below are a few shots from the trip...
Cheers,
Mike

they are deep wreck, no much coral , I like shallow water wreck with beautiful soft coral coverage :

1. Hanakawa Maru is the best : http://www.flickr.co...57626102928123/

2. Sinkoku Maru is the 2nd best : http://www.flickr.co...57626102958605/

It depends on personal preference, I prefer the deep wrecks.

I like seeing the massive props, and the other photo in your second post is pretty cool too. It's nice when the fish co-operate! Do you think the cloudy weather up top significantly impacted your available light/white balancing?

Haha, love the deco line shot, looks like a random heap of gear! :D

 

I myself am not that much into wrecks, I'm more of a critter guy, but the shots of a diver next to one of those enormous props is always awesome! :)

 

Looks like a nice trip!

I had to laugh about the Decoline picture. Sort of been there :-)
