This image was captured at a famous dive site in Fiji called E6 – named for the processing code for film slides. Even in this digital age the site is still great for photography. This huge soft coral fan complex was about 6 feet across with lots of nooks and crannies. This large lionfish seemed to feel totally safe as several photographers took their turns trying to get just the right shot. The sun coming though from the back made it a special challenge but added a nice highlight.
