2nd Place Nudibranch

 Veronika Nagy

"The Climb"


Veronika Nagy won a one week liveaboard trip to Cuba with Avalon Outdoor!


The Story: This scene combines so many things I love - a kelp forest, turquoise waters, and a hooded nudibranch. Hooded nudibranchs are very unique with an oral hood that looks like a venus-flytrap and paddle-shaped cerata beautifully displayed by this individual. I was drawn in by its contrast against the dark forest background and the way it appeared to be on a journey to the surface.
