Super macro at the Junkyard

Post by lologrande » Mon Jan 16, 2017 7:41 pm

Went down the the Alki Junkyard on Saturday to shoot some super macro in the eel grass. There is a lot to see there right now. Skeleton shrimp out the wazoo! Sadly I didn't get any really good shots of one. If I could only get the eel grass to stand still! :angry: The diopter and moving objects just don't mix. Max depth 23'.

The owls are not what they seem.

Great shots! Yes, I agree..if there was a way to get the eel grass to quit swaying....let me know when you figure that one out!

Very cool. I have not seen an amphipod eye with that detail before. Great job!
