On the deck of the Shinkoku, it took me ages to finally get the shot I really wanted. Was aiming to capture this little guy's head on but also capture the transulcent nature of the anemone.

Wanted to get a near to front on shot of a Weedy Sea Dragon. After about thirty minutes I managed to get this. The position of the lights hit at just the right angle to highlight the beautiful colours of the body.

Always an interesting situation to find common place element of a ship in a not so common place. This one was on one of the decks within the middle of the wreck, well away from the sides.
