Dive Days 2 and 3 in Raja Ampat on board The Arenui!

the arenui, raja ampat, scuba, divingDive days 2 and 3 on The Arenui were spent fighting with my new camera and housing! I had difficulty with color on day 2, which was irritating because we saw an incredible shoal of Humphead Parrotfish and I really wanted the photos to be colorful. Day 3 was a little better in the color department! The dive sites were awesome!
