    Yes. Very distinct architecture, I think. But, most photos taken at the time were from higher up, so it gave it a different perspective.

    I am not sure of the story, I just know it is one of several random deep pockets in the ocean.

    Yes it is. And the gun he used. Notice the burn in the handkerchief he used to conceal the gun. Very good , Hatz!!!

    Actually my pic is not the Dragon Hole but the Great Blue Hole off the coast of Belize, lying in the center of the Lighthouse Reef. It is a giant submarine sinkhole and a favored diving spot for those who enjoy that sort of thing.

    The "Dragon Hole," which you referenced , is actually the deepest sinkhole in the world, about three times deeper than the Great Blue Hole off of Belize.

    So, you were close, just had the wrong hole.
