Scuba Diver Issue 01/2020 (117)
Plunging from a world of land and sky, filtered light beneath the surface is made placid in the depths. But what if you can see each layer, all put together? This is the beauty of split shots, encapsulated in this issue through renowned photographers who are excellent in their craft. Along with this, the best of underwater and blackwater photography are stitched together, and this Collectors’ Edition of Scuba Diver Ocean Planet is one that is chock-full of breathtaking images taken by Photography Gurus around the world.
Dipping below the surface we enter a trippy, zero-gravity state beyond even Lewis Carroll’s wildest imagination. SDAA now brings you some of the most incredible, fantastical underwater seascapes, topography that defies logic, and the creatures that seem to have emerged from a fairy-tale land.
From mysterious mangroves, dramatic ravines, canyons and caves, fields of insanely colourful coral, and reef formations that seem to defy common sense.
We take you up close and personal to the beasts behind the myths (the dugongs and walruses), to trippy critters that even the Cheshire cat couldn’t have predicted (neon nudibranchs, of course!). Meet the real Moby Dick (Migaloo), and explore seascapes in Sulawesi that Salvador Dali might have dreamed up. Time to leave reason at the surface.
