As I said yesterday,
we decided yet another trip to the Monterey Bay Aquarium
was in order.
It's a true crime to come to this area
and not visit this world renowned venue.
We've been many times, (we have annual passes)
but every time we see it through different eyes.
I've tried almost every camera I own,
and in the past, my iPhone 4s has done the best.
I think photography is particularly difficult
because many of the aquarium windows
are over twelve inches thick.
So even though I've had terrible results before,
once again I decided to use my Canon SX50.
Next time, I think I'll take the Canon 7D,
but I'm not sure I'm capable enough to get good results.
So on to the pictures.

This is a tank called the Living Sea,
featuring a humongous kelp forest.
I love the kelp forest,
the light streaming from above
casts an ethereal glow.
We were lucky enough
to catch one of the divers
as he was feeding the tank.
Wouldn't this be a fun job?
All the divers are volunteers.
I have so many favorites at the Aquarium,
it's hard to not shoot the same thing
over and over.
So these are probably duplicates
from an earlier blog.
I just love the anemones.
and such beautiful shapes.
I think they look
like they're from another planet.
This is the last one for today.
