I captured this jelly in shallow (knee-deep) water at Cuanguski-Bay, Island Lošinj. There are very few sandy beaches on Croatian Islands, Cuanguski-Bay is one of them. I've been there two days before this capture and no jelly was there. But on this day about noon hundreds of them came close to the beach.

Roland, unusual and great shot.

Excellent sharpness, lighting and composition.

Of course, the shadow is a great bonus.

Congratulations on this.

Hi Roland
What a beautifull and tender photo.
I liked the sharpness of the jelly and the background with the nuances of the sand..
Good eye to see and capture this
Well done.

This is a great image. Crytal clear water, the tecture of the sand and the shadow just make the image well composed.

Excellent shot! It's so rare to see a good underwater pic of these strange animals but you have captured it well. The shadow gives a sense of the depth and size.

Great composition with the distinct placements of the jelly fish and shadow as well as the interesting ripple of the sand.
Well done.

Been there in August, haven't seen any of these beautiful creatures. I love this shot for its simplicity and composition.

Keep up the darn good work!

Hi, Roland.
You have very interesting shot here. Superb sand background. Without anything it's allready good. Good jellyfish composition with shadow makes it a very good photo. Nice one.

Hello Roland,
Perfect picture!. I love detais colours and composition.
Excellent work

great pic, refreshing at TN, TFS Ori

Hi Roland,
This is an absolutely amazing shot. It's also my lack of adventure that's probably amazed me so much since I have never seen a jelly in such shallow water. Besides that you have done an excellent job of capturing both the jelly and it's shadow with the details as fine as the sand grains and also the wave patterns.

The water here is so clear that it almost seems that the jelly is in flight and not avtually in water. This is also a result of you making sure that you don't create any ripples in the water while taking the shot. This is truly amazing work!!




assing to my favs. Thanks.

Hi Roland. Spectacular shot! Love the aura of light in the shadow. Just beautiful lighting, nice soft colours and good detail. Sand in this light is a breath of fresh air. You framed this very well too. TFS Trevor
