This collection of stunning images is a showcase for the work of the world’s greatest underwater wildlife photographers. It includes beautifully composed and rarely seen images illustrating the full diversity of marine life, from mighty whales and graceful turtles through to huge shimmering shoals of fish and riotously colored corals, anenomes, crustaceans and sponges.
The book contains 120 superb images taken in locations around the world, and with strong representation from certain favored areas such as Asia, Australasia and the Pacific.
Surprises include a selection of innovative compositions and some of the more esoteric yet remarkable forms of ocean wildlife such as the diverse and frequently jawdroppingly weird and colorful nudibranchs.
