Photographer's Note

I would like to thank all the brave people who comment my previous photo that personally I really like. From the little feedback I have got, I understand that some people felt embarrassed by the subject, even though it is the natural way of life… however, this time I decided to post a fish :-)

Eilat Bay sits at the northern tip of a magnificent coral reef which straddles the equator. The clear, warm sea (minimum 20 Celsius degrees) provides the ideal environment for the coral to build their homes. The coral reef is as variegated as its inhabitants are: ichthyologists have identified over 100 types of stony coral and 650 species of fish in the coral beach reserve. I especially like this place because that’s also where I learn scuba diving.

I took this photo at the underwater observatory in Eilat. It was built in 1974, and was the first underwater observatory marine park of its kind. The goal was to open a window to the red sea.

I was trying to make panning to some fish during most of my stay there :-) I found it extremely difficult to follow those fish with my camera and at the same time to build some interesting composition. At the end most of the photos were away too blurred, but this one I’m quite happy with even if it was not the most colourful fish around. The motion blur background contains mainly corals and few small fish.
