    wow! stunning!… to be so much into the oceans, to see so much fantastic things that ordinary people don’t see, you mush find ground’s continents very boring…. ;)

  • Thank you Manon. I love to be in the oceans, but I couldn’t live there. I love both worlds too much.

    This may be common but it is spectacular! Colors and patterns that defy imagination but are commonplace in the world beneath the waves. Real and yet so unreal!

  • Thank you very much for this analysis.
