An underwater shot I took during one of my numerous SCUBA dives on the fringing reef just offshore from the USGS's As Shuaybah rest camp. The reef was lush, healthy, and pristine. The visibility was usually better than this image suggests: I often dove in waters with 80-100 feet of visibility. The waters were often so clear as to give one the impression of flying in mid-air. At the time, very few expats were diving on the reefs on the Saudi Arabian shore of the Red Sea.
