The Rear of the Reef Crest

The reef crest extended about 15 meters with a water depth of 1-2 m. Unfortunately rough weather kept us to the back of the crest. The feature that best defines the extent of the reef crest is the massive nature of the coral. As pictured here the coral (Porites porites) forms a large structure composed of many small heads. The lower photo shows that some of the coral has undergone bleaching.
