Finalist Conservation (Hope) Photographer of the Year
Remuna Beca Addu Atoll, Maldives
Magnificent corals form the shape of a heart in the Maldives. "While diving off Addu Atoll in search of manta rays, I was captivated by the intricate coral formations and stunning reefs," says Beca. "The conditions were challenging and visibility low due to concentrations of plankton and evening light. I needed to find a different perspective and shooting from above, I noticed the unique shape of these corals. Hopefully the image not only celebrates the beauty of nature's design but also serves as a poignant reminder of the need to protect these fragile habitats that are the heart of our ocean."
