I spent 2 days day and night shooting this island scene from every possible angle and lighting situation. This was my favorite shot.

The interesting shot at first glance looks like the remains of a prehistoric monster and it's actually the remains of near microscopic creatures. Tell us more about this spot?

Although called Coral Island it isnt really made from coral. Its just south of Eilat Israel. The ruins you can see were make by Marmalukes during the time of the Crusades in the 13th century. Its a beautiful quiet spot. Not a long swim from the shore but when I was there I didnt really like swimming with sharks which are in the area. I settled for mountain climbing and spending hours on the beach taking lots of shots. Throughout the day as the sun moved the colors of the island went from dull browns and grays to brilliant gold.

Guess what--you're the top hit in Google with a search on Marmalukes and Crusades. That's a successful photograph if it sends people to study the history and learn as well as enjoy the scene.
