Under the Sea(water)

The Columbus Zoo has a very nice aquarium which I happened to walk into this day.  It was crowded in there so I did a lot of waiting to get shots only to have them turn out not so hot as there were reflections of the other visitor in the glass.  There were so many other brilliant fish and the manatees that I wanted to get photos of too.  Oh well….sometimes you win sometimes you get to do it again.

Not quite the same as being underwater with them but for those of us who cannot dive (Hi Indah!) – it’s nice to see.

    Nice picture. I love turtles 🙂

    These are some lovely shots! Great job! 🙂

  3. I remember taking about 400 shots at the aquarium here and about 30 were usable. Not so easy is it? These are nice shots though so well done you 🙂

  4. Really nice shots Teri! It’s not easy to take pictures in zoo’s aquarium – usually the lighting could be quite minimum (that’s my experience) and you took awesome pics – plus they have turtle!!

    Thank you so much for the mention 🙂 Have a fantastic day!

    These have turned out rather well. Did you put your lens up to the glass? Would a polarising filter help?

    • I keep my lens hood on especially for times like this and get close to putting it on the glass. I didn’t have a polarizing filter on but I’d imagine that could help. Mostly it’s about positioning yourself to make sure you’re getting a good clear(ish) shot and then wait for your subject to come by.

  6. Yeah these are very good Teri..I have the same questions as Draco.

    • Shooting through glass at something that isn’t moving vs things moving takes some effort and planning. Although with the ray I was right there when he swooped up. See above reply for more detail 🙂

  7. Great shots…your patience paid off.

    Excellent shots, Teri! There is something about sea turtles! Encountered one while snorkeling in Maui; I had to literally swim backwards so as not to run into this dear creature! Cher xo
