Monterey Bay Aquarium Photo Walk

The Weedy Sea Dragon - appropriately named I'd say.

Thank you to everyone who joined me Thursday for our Camera West Photo Walk at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. We had a small, enthusiastic group of shooters and the aquarium did not disappoint us as there were plenty of colorful fishes and unusual sea creatures to photograph. Plus, we learned how to shoot in some challenging situations – dim light, glass reflections and quick moving jellyfish. Never realized how quickly some of them could move!

Anyway, a good time was had by all and when we were done with our shoot, many of us gathered for dinner at a great Cannery Row restaurant. Fish of course was on the menu. The perfect finish to a beautiful day!
