[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This past summer my girlfriend and I stayed on a boat over night on the Great Barrier Reef. Neither of us were SCUBA certified so we were only able to snorkel. Within the first five minutes of jumping in the water, we were passed by a school of squid. I have no idea how many were in the school but I would guess that it was more than fifty. It was an awesome experience. I love the colors in their eyes.

I love this one!
Underwater photography is always amazing. The world down there is so much different from what we have above.
I so much enjoy the colors here. And of course the squids. Indeed, their eyes are fantastic!
Great capture!
Regards, Rafal

Matthew it's a fine shot considering the light is seriously difficult underwater. Rgds Necip

Hey Matthew,
I tried my hand at underwater photography just this last weekend and can understand that this is a great capture and also that it must have been a terrific experience.



Hello Matthew,
incredible underwater image that seems out of prehistory. You picked a fine time. Regards, Paolo
