SARGASSUM

BOTANICAL - Runner-up

SARGASSUM SEAWEED, SARGASSUM SP.

I love bold primary colours and strong shapes in my photography. I like the way this common sargassum seaweed glows a beautiful golden colour in my underwater lights against the bold rugged shape and texture of the rocks. To me this image is all about the shapes, tones and textures.
