Ocean Ova Series, Sea Egg no. 7 (Cerianthid Tube Anemone)


The planet’s oceans are, in a real sense, the womb of all life on Earth. This premise underlies my Ocean Ova series of images, of which this is the seventh. I manipulated the original image of a Tube Anemone (Cerianthus sp.) shot at night in an attempt to embody this premise.
