The Philippines is an archipelago of 7,107 islands, located approximately 500 miles West of Guam and Micronesia. It has more coastline than the entire United States, and is home to some of the richest marine biodiversity on the planet.
These three photos were taken off of Anilao, a small community on the Southern end of the Philippine island of Luzon. For more photos from my shoot in Anilao, please see my entire photo gallery.
For a comprehensive guide to diving the Philippines, I highly suggest reading this recent article by my fellow underwater photographer and Filipino native, Stewart Sy.
