This is a wonderful sharp image with great natural color and sharpness. Sadly it was one of the last images for that lens before stricken with catastrophe. What happened to it?? I like this image a LOT.
TFS and Bon voyage!! (does this mean we get to go on safari??) : )

If I look at this at a certain angle I see a bird with his beak opened and his body and wings. Very artistic shot of this kelp floating in the water. Excellent details and artistry.

Not sure if this is Canon specific or just your good controls...but Canon at best does real well with blues and greens...or better put it does well with colours in the similar spectrum...finely defining! Very interesting image of what many might consider passing without notice..!

Hello James! So you're going on another great trip! Do you need someone to hold and transport your lenses? :-) I'm a little bit jealous :-) Hope you have a great one. Very good picture of that kelp, good details and exposure, well done again! Bon voyage!

It almost looks like a living creature there.The way it flows in the water.
Excellent sharpness and detail.
I really like the richness of the water detail.
Wonderful colour saturation.

What an interesting subject and creative idea. And I am impressive with quality of its realization. Water-plants create an amazing impression by their hair. Water surface is reproduced brilliantly (I mean the colours and texture). Sharpness of the image is razor and light is superb. Composition is the best too. My compliments and best regards.

Hi James, an excellent shot of this kelp on the loose. You have good sharp detail composed with a great background with the swirling sea. This, tied in with your excellent notes, gives us a lesson on this brown algae that many would not have even heard of without this posting of yours. Very nicely done.

very strange shot... i think that is not something we can see everyday in TN, so my compliments to show something new. An excellent note, let me say, I learn quite a lot!!! so, thank you so much!!
This "hary" thing is very well centered, I like how it resalt from the green/blue water. Lovely details over the water too.
very nice work!
Have a nice trip to south africa! i´ll be expecting your pics from there!! Buen Viaje!!!
regards and enjoy your vacations

It is a very interesting presentation. Floating kelp could be a vector for species dispersal (polychaetes, crustaceans) and D. antarctica is one of the most important drifting species

When I looked at the thumbnail version of this picture, I thought it was some mysterious denizen of the deep surfacing for a moment to be photographed by our itinerant James :-).
Great shot, technically, and truly an abstract shape of this algae.
Your note educates us very effectively about it.
Now we look forward to your latest images from South Africa.

Once again a very educational contribution.
If you already back, I hope you enjoyed your trip to South Africa. You made me curious...
This kelp looks mysterious as if the ocean has revealed one of its deep secrets.
You photographed it very sharp. The form of the kelp is fascinating; almost a cap ’n bells without bells from a jester.
