Papua New Guinea - Diving the Witu Islands

    I spent nearly two weeks diving the Witu Islands in PNG's New Britain Province in December and have written a full trip report on it on my site.

    Here is the link to Diving the Witu Islands

    All the wide-angle images were taken with a Nikon D500 and 8-15mm lens in a Nauticam housing with the 140mm port, which I personally find to be really great combo. The macro images were taken with the 40mm Micro-Nikkor - I screwed up in the last minute packing and left my 60mm and 105mm macros behind... As they say the best lens you have is the one on your camera!

    I have been visiting Papua New Guinea regularly for 20 years, but this was the first time to the Witu Islands and I really was impressed. When you look at the location of the islands in the Bismarck Sea, relative to the rest of the Coral Triangle, it becomes clearer why they are such so biodiverse.

    Here are a few images to illustrate what I mean.
