Ghosts in kelp

seal

Mon pointed this excellent photo out to me – it’s Kyle McBurnie’s winning picture from the University of Miami’s Underwater Photography competition.

This seal seems to be floating in air, rather than water, and I love the way the strands of kelp drift like ghosts. This remarkable picture also strikes a chord for me as it brings a scene from Riptide to life…

    This is truly a beautiful shot. It seems as if the seal is floating through a forest of sky high kelp enveloped in mist (to me at least). Beautiful!!!

      It’s really stunning, isn’t it? There’s some great stuff in that gallery, but this is a deserving winner.
