Art Roundup, week of March 19th

Over the last week, I’ve been bringing highlights of my last dive from my Blackbeard’s Cruise back in 2005. The site was a partially submerged wreck, and on the surface, it appeared rather simple. However, once I delved into the shallow waters, the teeming life bloomed. While I’d encountered plenty of fish during the weeklong trip, it paled compared to the sea life that was whipping about the coral reef encrusted hull. If you see any images here that aren’t available on Natural Desygns or SM Desygns reach out to me through the Etsy store and I’ll add the image to the correct store. In the meantime, click any of the images to head over to DeviantArt to get a better look.

Reclaimed Anchor

When we found the Sapona’s anchor, a small school of yellowish fish swam past the hunk of metal. As I drew closer, I saw the beginnings of coral claiming the anchor as its own.

Despite the addition of a vessel to the ocean, we could locate a patch of ocean floor with waving seaweed. As I watched the vegetation sway along with the current, another school of fish swept through the soft branches.

School Expedition

Flowing School

With such a shallow dive, I had lots of time to explore the site. Eventually, I came upon this bit of the site where the school congregated. The fish flowed through the opening as if they were being shot through a hose.

As my partner and I came to the aft of the boat, we watched a school hug the edge of the boat as they swam from the depths of the Sapona.
