Red Seaweed in Blue Sea

Lonely bush of red seaweed dances with surf on flat sandy bottom near Leigh, New Zealand. Water is surprisingly clear; it’s mid November, it should be blooming with plankton, this is more like a late winter. Water is still cold, fish are scarce, schools of pelagic ones will be frequent visitors when it gets warmer.
