Francesco won a YS-D2 strobe from SEA&SEA!


The story:  In the last summer a conjunction of several factors: the sea temperature rise in conjunction with coelenterates reproduction period and the decrease of natural predators, dramatically boosted the population of Rhizostoma pulmo. Then Mistral wind and currents concentrated thousands of individuals of jellyfishes in the shallow water of Versilia coast.  Calm sea and unusually good visibility motivated me to explore this fascinating subject from a photographic standpoint, exploiting the soft light of the early morning and sunset.

Location:  Forte dei Marmi, Tuscany, Italy

Camera:  Nikon D7000 and Tokina 10-17 Lens @10mm (1/320s f 18 100 ISO) Isotta Housing and 2x Ikelite SS 200 strobes
