Blue throat by Stephen Colquitt


Available to buy on…

This colony of blue throated ascidians are marine creatures that live attached to a pylon under the Busselton Jetty.

This is a photograph I took when I was beginning to learn about underwater phtography.

Scuba diving and photography often make some wonderful images. Water and cameras however do not mix so well, which is where the art of underwater photography becomes difficult.

    These ascidians are so beautiful, so much nicer than the common one on rocky shores. Again, I am definately a fan
