In September 2004 Hurricane Ivan struck the Cayman Islands, up rooting many corals, particular the beaching elkhorn coral that grows exposed on top of the reef. The photo top left shows a colony washed into the middle of a street that photographed while the storm was subsiding. The other two photos show the recovery, all this growth has happened in the last 12 years. I should add that this is one of the fastest growing coral species, others are much slower. #caymanislands #coral #coralreef #subal_underwater_housing #nikond5 #nikond4 #underwaterphotography #uwphotography #marinelife
