Out of Gloom

Australasian snapper coming out of gloom

I love that misty look of a kelp forest submerged in murky water. It can be scary … you don’t know what hides a couple of meters away from you … but it offers a taste of mystery. You cannot see from the distance so you don’t know. You must get close to find out.
