A Blue Jelly swims in inner space. Acquiring this shot was no small feat. The tank was a cylinder making reflections near impossible. In addition if anyone stood on the other side of the tank you'd get them in the shot. These creatures never cease to amaze me whether seen in the wild or as in this case inside a tank at the Monterey Bay Aquarium.

One of the main things I have had to learn as a photographer is you have to
have a lot of patience if you really want the shot. This is one of my
favorite ones for the detail of the little jelly.

Similar to a previous post this is an image looking straight towards the sun
and catching the golden rays of light from the early morning sunrise in
Redwood National Park. We could drive just a mile or so and go from socked
in fog to clear skies. The places to get the pictures was on the edges
where the sun fog and sky all mixed together.

In the wild, this animal would appear nearly invisible in the ocean. But
at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, artificial lighting makes the detail and
beauty of the Jellyfish apparent. The tiny stinging threads pulsate with
the movements of the main body hanging down many lengths the body of the
jellyfish. Its foot sparkles like stars in space in the water behind the
jellyfish. I can and have spent hours in the jellyfish exhibit just
watching these beautiful creatures. Very hard to film due to the low
lighting I was very lucky this guy was swimming very slowly across the
window and I was able to position the camera to captures the detail. They
look so incredible you just want to reach out and touch them but the signs
warn you of dangers of doing so. I can't think of a creature on the land
or under the sea that comes in such wonderful shapes and colors. More
jellyfish will be forth coming.

Having been thwarted by a fast moving Pacific storm and the slow speed of
Highway One, I decided to head back inland and hit the 101 South to beat the
incoming storm to San Francisco. Arriving just before sunset (See Previous
Image) the clouds were impressive but the reflections in the surf even more
so.

Each winter they light up the Embarcadero Plaza and the little city by the
Bay really glows.
