PhotoFriday – ‘Distance’

This week’s Photo Friday entry: ’Distance’

In the warm tropic seas around the world you can often see far into the distance because the visibility of the water is so good. This allows us to photograph impressively large shipwrecks. However due to the properties of light underwater the loss of colour is more apparent the further away the subject. For example in this Kittiwake shot below I’m very close to the front of this ship maybe 1m even though it doesn’t look it. As you get further into the photo the back of the ship looks quite blue.

If you want to see my underwater photos from various places then check out the galleries in my Reef Beasties Gallery. Or my best from 2012 here.
