Komodo Coral Reefs: Wide Angle Views of the Coral Triangle

Located in the heart of the legendary Coral Triangle, Komodo National Park is home to some of the best reefs in the world.

At the end of July 2017, I was very lucky to join the owners and crew of the Seven Seas on a 12-day voyage across the islands of the Park. By far my favorite dives were in and around the beautiful shallow reefs which surround Komodo's seamounts.

Schools of colorful anthias danced in the light of the afternoon sun while larger species darted in and out of my camera's frame. The visibility was amazing, giving me the opportunity to try out new techniques for underwater photography like underwater panoramas.

This gallery was entirely shot with my Canon 5D Mark III with natural light using a Liquid Eye Water Housing Systems camera housing.

Check out the gallery below to see the photo highlights, or see the all the photo galleries from our Komodo liveaboard dive trip - from scuba diving, to aerial photos, to freediving, to the incredible wildlife in this amazing place. You can also see galleries from other Seven Seas liveaboard dive trips - my absolute favorite way to explore the awesome natural beauty and unique cultures of Indonesia.
