According to the photographer, this ghostly shipwreck is that of a Russian Moma Class surveillance vessel, one of many wrecks littering the floor of the Red Sea in what can only be described as a ship graveyard.  Located at a depth of around 25 metres close to the border between Egypt and Sudan, the vessel presents an incredible dive site.  Storms, dangerous current and countless coral reefs, not to mention war and conflict, have made the Red Sea a hotbed of shipwrecks from the time of the Ancient Egyptians to the Romans and throughout modernity.  As a result, the region is now home to some of the world’s best wreck diving.
