Schooling Sweetlips are an underwater photographer’s delight with their bold yellow stripes and expressive lips. I found this school in the tropical waters of Indonesia above a beautiful coral garden and surrounded by glass fish. I came back to visit them at this dive site multiple times, mesmerized by their beauty and committed to capture them. To me the contrasting colors in this scene show how nature itself truly is a work and of art.
