On the Rise

On the Rise
Photograph by David Doubilet

In a quiet ascent a Cuban diver spotlights the architecture of Devil’s Hole in Cayo Largo at the far eastern end of Cuba’s Canarreos Archipelago. Parts of the chimney of coral—which plummets to 200 feet (61 meters)—are too steep to house many organisms, but life clings beneath the walls’ rock shelves and hides within their cracks and crevices.
