The Story: 

 In Raja Ampat, there's a dive spot that holds a special place in my heart. Near the village of Sawandarek, at approximately 30 meters depth, lies a magnificent cluster of Turbinaria coral. Thanks to its substantial size, numerous fish species congregate here, finding shelter effortlessly among the coral formations. Among the diverse species, a small group of Sweet Lips is often encountered, and with a bit of patience and skill, they can be approached quite easily. Moving in slowly, I managed to capture them in a picturesque setting, surrounded by many other fish and the stunning blue hues of the water.
