The Mine, Pt Lincoln, South Australia

wouldn’t say infested, but definitely around. I lived there for the first 10 years of my life and still go back a few times a year for a holiday. It’s a small own of about 20’000 people thats on the water and about 3

West side of Ohau, Hawaii

South of Kaeana Point, a few hundred yards past Kaneana Cave, just past the Moi Hole, if that helps. Not sure if that’s part of Kaena Point trail or not?

The Abyss, Livingston, Antarctica

Not lifeless. Very cold waters are actually full of life, particularly small unicellular algae, because cold water carries more nutrients. These persist for quite a depth, a few hundred metres even. But even right down the bottom, there would still be things living there

Mangroves at high tide, Port Phillip Bay.

Yeah, I got poked a lot. The roots get taller as you approach the plant, so I couldn’t get any closer than I was for that particular shot. I had to be really careful not to damage anything – slow movements and really tiny,

The Sargasso Sea

I study metals and viruses in the ocean, but other people use the vessel to record a time series of changing physical, chemical, and biological ocean data.

Under a wave

You know, I have been having a really shitty fucking night. I like water pictures a lot. Sometimes this shit gets stupid with the same crazy colorful “inside the barrel shots at sunset” shit. Thanks for posting this. This is an incredible picture and
