I just love the textures, shape, shadow and depth in this shot!
Sometimes the most natural shots are captured in an instant ~ frozen in time like ‘liquid nitrogen’ freezes ‘Han Solo’ in Star Wars!
In an instant ~ no time for angles, lighting, composition or even exposure ~ just freeze frame!
Passing over this subject on an easy drift dive ~ this caught my eye ~ a quick snap and hey presto ~ job done!
It was only later that I noticed the ‘holothurid’ sea-cucumber grazing off the side of the barrel sponges casket ~ but I like the name.
Barrel Casket & Crinoid ~ would make a lovely name for an old English Pub!
