18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Pristine Caribbean coral reef

Variety of mixed hard, soft and fan pristine corals in a unspoiled side (windward) of a small Caribbean island. This image shows how the Nature takes over when there is no human impact. On the other side of the island, where people lives and the coastal contructions are, the scenario is totaly different and the level of degradation is very high.
