I captured this at the large tank of West Coast sea nettles – gorgeous, graceful creatures – at a special “Photographers Night” at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, California. Imagine 300 photographers, no screaming kids, and thoughtfully placed black curtains to block some reflections. Fun!

    Very other worldly, love the color!

  • Thanks, Cindy! The color is one of the appeals to me as well, especially the glow against dark water.
