Rainbow Warrior
Click on magnifying glass icons for larger sized images
Resting beneath the aquamarine waters of the Cavalli Islands on New Zealand's north east coast is the Rainbow Warrior. Once the pride of the Greenpeace fleet, she now creates a home for thousands of marine organisms and is a memorial to the the state sponsored terrorism of la République ; lest we should forget.
Now the ship is blanketed beneath a lush community of tiny encrusting organisms providing many an opportunity for the intrepid underwater photographer.
