sea urchin

All posts tagged sea urchin

All of a sudden I had time for 3 subsequent dives to take my camera. It was a busy day shooting and editing!
And I’m trying to shoot a variety of things, but some things you don’t always see, and other things are just too beautiful to let pass.
The lion fish are absolutely gorgeous and very photogenic. I guess I’ll keep on shooting those.

And then there are the less common ones. Frog fish… Got a moray eel, an extremely cute juvenile harlequin sweetlips, a few different pufferfish, and a few beautiful sea urchins.
The sea urchins really were something different. The colors are stunning (and unedited!). It was almost like being in a club with a big (neon) light show. The colors are radiating, pulsing almost!
You’re missing out on a beautiful world if you only live above water.
I guess the powers that be put all the colors in the ocean, out of the reach of human destructive hands as much as possible…
