Going underwater...

A number of posts have shown the seabirds that gather at particular times of year in the Strait of Gibraltar.  They come in to exploit the richness of marine life where Atlantic water meets the Mediterranean.  I take the opportunity in this post to show some of the richness of underwater Gibraltar.  The photographs were taken by my wife Geraldine this Saturday and Sunday.  Some were in a reef called Seven Sisters and others in a wreck called Burkhana.
