Flow - Bull Kelp, Carmel, California

Portfolio & Services


I am constantly fascinated with the movement of kelp. The passing energy of waves overhead can create a rhythmic ebb and flow of their blades.


I realize this shot is not for everyone. It's simply an abstract idea I've had from time to time while diving. I definitely want to try some different approaches as time goes by. Until then...
