Just spent 4 days in the Similan Islands. Unbelievably bad timing as the princess of Thailand decided to go diving in Surin and Richelieu so most of the area was closed. I felt very sad to see the effects of both Tsunami and coral bleaching there as much of the hard coral above 12-15m was dead. Below that was lovely but mostly requiring nitrox!

A few favourites, hope you enjoy. All taken with D7000, Nauticam housing, Inon strobes

As usual, wonderful shots. Thanks for sharing. I think the first one of the wire coral gobies has set a new bar for wire coral goby shots.
