Weekly Photo Challenge: Depth


In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Depth.”  I’m currently preparing for a scuba diving trip so I figured I’d look through some photos from my last dive trip.  I chose this photo of a squirrel fish hiding in a cave for two reasons:

1) the photo was obviously taken “at depth”, and,

2) I was able to get a feeling of the depth of this little alcove by placing my flash above the fish and letting the back of the fish fade off into the black shadows.  I think it adds to the photo by highlighting the face (expressions?) of the fish while also adding some mystery of what is lurking in the shadows behind….????

  5. He is fab. Such a mysterious photo with the shadows, but great colours too. I’ve always wanted to try diving, I’ve only ever snorkelled along the Ras Mohammed reef in Egypt, and that was amazing… must try proper scuba diving though, if only to meet a few of these! 🙂

    • Laura – I highly recommend it! You get to spend much more time with the creatures and get to know how they live and the communities they belong to. I’ll have more underwater pics to post soon from the trip we just returned from.
