"Red Carpet"



The Story: The Sea pen is very common in the sandy sea bottom at Anilao. You can often find a goby or small crab staying inside the pen for protection. This sea pen colour was exaggerated by lighting via a pair of narrow beam torches with orange filters that I put on the sandy bottom. The goby was lit up by a single snoot flash light with a pin hole filter to get rid of colour cast. It looks like a VIP walking along the luxury red carpet.
