1st Place Nudibranch

"Treats from Mooloolah River"


Jenny won a 7 night dive package in a deluxe bungalow at Villa Markisa!


The Story: The Mooloolah River is a rich treasure trove of nudibranchs. Over 350 species have been found along the 600m river bank. The real challenge is to get a photograph that depicts the stunning form of these tiny creatures. I fell in love with flabellina lotus in particular. I returned to the river every weekend for four months to try to achieve an image where the flabellina's vivid purple cerata popped against a jet black background.
