Visually stunning yes, but what a bunch of amateurs?

No one who has seen a bleaching event in the wild would describe it "as an endless stretch of white".

A visually stunning spread just came out in Time magazine focused on the XL Catlin Seaview Survey documentation of the severe bleaching in New Caledonia earlier this year.
