As a compliment to the photo of the ocean floor I posted a few days ago, here is a view taken from the same location and depth but instead looking up toward to the surface. A simple enough image, but unfortunately it is a view that too few people experience, not being inclined to venture under the surface of the ocean. Today’s abstract photo, #7 of 15:
I made a number of trips to the Bahamas to film Olympic champion swimmers and wild dolphins. While we were roasting in the Bahamian sun, waiting for dolphins to appear, we could swim as much as we wanted in the clear shallow waters of the Little Bahama Banks. I really enjoyed watching the sunlight move over the white sand bottom, and took many photos during those trips trying to capture the beauty of those patterns. Today’s abstract photo, #5 of 15:
Much of my time underwater is spent looking for simple, available light photographs. These are not sexy photos, but they tend to sell well and are typically used as backgrounds or screened back with text or inset photos laid over the top. The best part is they are simple to shoot, even for me.
