Sunken Japanese tank in the Duke of York Islands lagoon

P1000491 DOY Tank 4

Coral is gradually claiming for the sea two Japanese tanks dumped in about six or eight meters of water in the Duke of York Islands lagoon, off Rabaul. The tanks remain remarkably intact and are clearly visible through the crystal water from the surface as this photograph shows. The patterning is not camouflage, rather it is the sunlight diffracted by the slight surface chop. P1000491
