Story behind the photograph
Open Water Course PADI manual states you learn to dive in order to “Meet People, Go Places, Do things”. Who would have thought how true this is. So, this amazing photograph of the Crown Jellyfish is dedicated to some new friends me made: Paulina, Kyzysiek, Zoe and Yassica from Argentina.
Photographed on the Great Barrier Reef the Crown Jelly fish was swimming just under the water surface and was about 25 to 30cm in diameter. I was surprised to learn how quickly it can swim and did not particularly feel comfortable with it so close to my face while making this photo.
