Bow gun on sunken Japanese ship (Truk, Micronesia)
Bow gun on the MV San Francisco Maru. Because of the depth (this shot was taken at 165 feet), there is a bit less life growing on this gun than many of the shallower wrecks in Truk (due to less sunlight). I was feeling a little "narc'ed" on this dive (technically Nitrogen Narcosis--a high concentration of nitrogen due to the pressure, similar to the feeling you get at the dentist with nitrous oxide), so I only shot a few photos on this wreck and then headed back up. This big gun was certainly one of the highlights!
