Esa Ala Village Jetty, Milne Bay Province, Papua New Guinea

“This dive site was incredible, with tons of macro life among the discarded tires, cans,
and other trash that were scattered around the pier. There were swirls of baitfish circling
the jetty supports, and villagers were using treble hooks on strings to snag them from above.
This, combined with the scores of long-spined urchins below, made this one of the more
hazardous shots I have ever made!”
