Random Photo Memory: Belizean Angelfish
Though I’ve seen all manner of glorious undersea wonders (both snorkeling, as well as descending via SCUBA to 160 ft. within Belize’s legendary “Blue Hole” (where I might add, there lies a most amazing and eerie array of stalactites alas devoid of all color at such breathtaking depths), I’ve only once owned the techno camera equipment to visually share the experience.
But at one point I had a most nifty (film) point and shoot, that was actually water-tight down to 15 ft., and thus was able to snap a few images such as this Blue-gray Angelfish. Then again… it took another two decades for today’s digital graphics software to catch up – so that I could tweak the (otherwise uniformly blueish) image into what you see below.
(btw, this pic was especially selected as my weekly WW post, to celebrate my most recent foray into the deep blue sea: just this week, I braved the depths at Julian Rocks in Byron Bay here in Oz, and SWAM WITH A SEA TURTLE! Alas, no pics but the encounter was quite thrilling.)
