Painted Carbonate Canyon

Dive 4 at Hadal Ridge was a fantastic dive. Among the primary highlights were the unexpected and beautiful layered rock outcrops that gave the submarine formation the look of several famous terrestrial landmarks. As remotely operated vehicle (ROV) Deep Discoverer obtained detailed imagery, ROV Seirios provided a sense of scale and magnitude of the feature.
