This summer there was a significant presence, after many years not seen, of this type of jellyfish (Cothyloriza tuberculata) in the Adriatic Sea in front of Trieste where I live.
So I immediately thought of photographing it with the backdrop of Miramare Castle, which is one of the most beautiful castles overlooking the sea in the world.
It was not easy to take this picture because I had to wait for the jellyfish to swim in a favorable position close to the surface, in order to obtain the image of the castle with in the over/under image.
