Superb capture. I would love to learn to Scuba and open up a whole new world of photography to me, until then, I guess I had best enjoy shots like this from the comfort of my own home.. thanks for sharing.

Is it part of the same sequence of yours that was selected as POTD on 13th Jan.? :-)

Realtively warm flash-light and the cool natural light combine to give wonderful colors.
Great work.

This is not an easy shot to take but you have managed it really well; did you know that box jellyfish have six human like eyes and four primitive brains? Cool eh?

Awesome Jacob!

Beautiful exposure and I love the motion on the flipper.

Astonishing! What is all the dark matter under the translucent jelly-top?
