Purple Aliens


So many forms of sea life look alien to us. Aquatic environments require such different ways to survive, that there seems to be a near infinite number of forms that life can take below the surface. These jellyfish were one of the displays at the Charleston Aquarium and are some of the more alien looking animals we can imagine. They are also quite beautiful in how light outlines their geometry. I am not a swimmer, so this is as close as I will ever get to their actual environment.

Keep shooting.

Jellyfish are pretty neat creatures. You captured them nicely.

Thanks, John. One of the things that I like about the photograph is the how the fine detail of the tentacles came out.
