Hai Siang Shipwreck

This secret wreck dive is located just off the coast of Reunion Island.

HAI SIANG WRECK

Of the western coast of Reunion Island, the Hai Siang shipwreck lies nearly 200 feet below the surface.

Formerly an illegal fishing vessel, the 196-foot Formosan boat was seized and sunk as an artificial reef in 1980. Since then, it has become rife with marine life, including eagle rays, mola mola, sea turtles, and hard and soft corals.

To capture this image, I used an ultra-wide-angle lens and positioned myself in front of the bow. I deliberately turned of my strobe to create the shot I was looking for.

Scuba Diving Magazine’s 11th Annual Photo Contest Winners

Wednesday, September 2nd, 2015

It’s been 11 years, yet somehow we never tire of the photo contest here at Scuba Diving magazine. But every now and then, there comes a time for change. Ansel Adams once said, “There are no rules for good photographs, there are only good photographs.” In that spirit, we tweaked our submission categories to recognize photographers adept at conceptual and compact-camera photography. And although the structure might have changed, the heart of our contest has remained the same: viewing the underwater world “Through Your Lens.” We hope you enjoy the show.
