Black, White and Nudi

Black, White and Nudi

This profile shot of a Glossodoris atromarginata was taken at Bare Island, Sydney, Australia. The location of the nudibranch made it easy to get a front on shot, rather than the usual top down angle. By adjusting the image to be in black and white the detail is brought out in the subject. Shot was taken with a Panasonic Lumix DMC FT1 camera with housing.

Seaslugs - Part II. Sidegill slugs and Sap-sucking slugsSeaslugs - Part II. Sidegill slugs and Sap-sucking slugs
In this article I will introduce you to the next two in hierarchical sequence. Seaslugs are indeed fascinating creatures and are a favorite for many photographers. They do not move about very quickly at all, which is a characteristic that makes them easy subjects to shoot. Often it is not the case of 'the one that got away', but the case of 'Oh no! I have run out of film again!'.
Seahorses - Ethereal BeautySeahorses - Ethereal Beauty
My ultimate diving dream is to meet orcas underwater. While I am waiting for this divine meeting with sea giants, I am fascinated with tiny graceful creatures called Hippocampus. Their name derives from Greek for seahorse and literally translates as horse sea monster.
