PhotoFriday – ‘Glass’

This week’s Photo Friday entry: ’Glass’

“A school of glass fish doesn’t swim or swirl – it flows like a river of mercury.”

(David Doubilet, sport diver Aug 2006.)

This weeks theme is glass, so we’ll celebrate glass fish 🙂 You can often find them in the dark corners of the ocean such as wrecks and caves. These here live in the Carnatic wreck in the Red Sea.

I think these better illustrate the quote but I wasn’t sure if they were silversides or glass fish (or really what the difference is)? Taken in a cave in Cayman.

PhotoFriday – ‘Metal’

This week’s Photo Friday entry: ’Metal’

Its been a while since my last post, apologies for that. Morning sickness and creative thought are mutually exclusive it seems. I thought I’d start back slowly with a belated Photofriday. This weeks theme is metal but I’ve been posting a lot about the rusty hunks of metal under the sea on this blog so I thought I’d show you some fish that look like liquid metal. When lit with flash it can be difficult not to blow out the highlights on their high reflective scales. Above, scad fish, below, tiny glass fish.

Psst… Please check out my excellent used Nikon Gear page, I’ve swapped over systems and I’m still trying to raise money on my previous gear get them now before they go.

Just back from South Red Sea

We’re just back from our trip so no Photo Friday today (mainly because I cannot think of a good photo for “Slick” which is todays theme). I’ve shared with you the one photo I’ve managed to upload from my trip so far. 🙂 More photos to come this weekend hopefully once I get through looking at them. This is inside the tug boat wreck at Abu Galawa Kebien dive site in South red sea, Egypt. Taken with Nikon D300, Tokina 10-17 FishEye lens and one Inon Z240 strobe.
