Monterey Bay Aquarium: The Kelp Forest

The Kelp Forest exhibit at the Monterey Bay Aquarium is so engaging that no one would fault your for spending a large chunk of your visit time there. This post is pictorial in nature and if you want to learn more about it just click the link above.

Each time I come, I never skip spending time at gawking at the underwater life as seen through the 28 feet tank.

  5. I can't believe you've gotten such clear shots through the glass. If you had wanted, you could pretend it was really taken underwater. :D Do you dive? The underwater world is really amazing, esp here in the Philippines.

  8. I must say I never visit aquariums for photography as I wouldn't expect to get good photos. Your extraordinary pictures just proved me wrong. Very good indeed.

  9. Watching fish can be hypnotic and these seem to have such distinct differences and, dare I say, personalities. :)

  12. I used to scuba dive. There were lots of similar creatures off Catalina Island. The larges fish I saw was a Nurse Shark near Ensenada. Swimming through a kelp forest was magical. - Margy
