It is always simply amazing how much underwater life a sunken ship may attract. The Boonsong wreck, a tin mining boat  sank in a storm in the 1980s. Since evolved into a fully inhabited coral reef habitat..

To be able to imagine the abundance of fishes, have a look at the video too:-)

What a fantastic underwater adventure you've taken me on as I sit bundled before the fire in Breckenridge! I like that little face peering out of the shell. The video made me feel as though I was underwater, too, swimming among the fishes.

You take wonderful underwater shots Jana (well you take wonderful land photos too!). I've never been scuba diving but there's a stunning world there to be explored.
