Photographer's Note

Marovo Lagoon, Solomon Islands.

This is the wreck of the Taiyo, a 300 foot long fishing boat that crashed and sank on it's maiden voyage. The ship went down backwards VERTICALLY against a massive reef. The bow is only 5 feet under the surface, and you can swim directly over it. As you look straight down to the stern nearly 300 feet into the abyss, you feel as though you are floating in outer space, hovering over the ship, trying your hardest to keep the powerful sense of vertigo at bay...
