Deep down in the deepest sea

I've been quite lucky with the weather on my visits to England before, but I guess one can't always be that lucky. During my 5 day visit over the last weekend, we had one really nice day, Friday (where we went for a lovely walk on the cliffs), and four cold, grey and sometimes wet ones. After having spent three lazy days, we decided to head off to Weymouth, to Sea Life. It was cold, and very grey, but the creatures there made for than up for it. They were just simply amazing.

These Moon Jellyfish were absolutly fascinating. I could have watched them for hours, as they gracefully floated through the water, reflecting colours of the changing light. Don't they just look like creatures from outer space.







Of course I took lots of photos of other animals too (about 500 in fact), and I'll share some of them (don't worry, I won't post all 500) later. But I thought these jellyfish deserved a post of their own.

    1. Thank you Ali. I really light the coloured light effect, but some of the darker colour were almost impossible to photograph.

    1. I know, I picked the wrong time this time. But on the other hand, it was also nice to get some relaxing days rather than feeling one has to go out and do something all the time.
