Weekly Photo Challenge: Two Subjects
Having just returned from a Scuba trip, this challenge plays right into my hands! The two subjects in this photo are a young lion fish which are incredibly ornate and photogenic and a like-colored crinoid (which is actually an animal like a star fish) sitting on top of some hard coral. This was taken on a night dive in Fiji on a reef just off the shore of the resort we stayed at. There were a lot of divers in the water but I saw this opportunity when I first submerged so I was able to get it before the water got stirred up – providing me with a stark black background. The photo was taken in about 25 ft of water.
