Life under the sea through the eyes of Ocean Photography Awards finalists – 9News

Photographer Henly Spiers took out second prize.

“Diving in amidst the barrage of gannets, I witness the violent synchronicity of these impressive seabirds as they embark on fishing dives,” Spiers said.

“They hit the water at 96.5km/h, an impact they can only withstand thanks to specially evolved air sacs in the head and chest.

“The bird’s agility transfers from air to sea where it also swims with incredible speed.”

This photo was taken in the Isle of Noss, Shetland, UK.
