Honorable Mention Cold Water

Sage Ono

"The Next Generation"


The Story: Tubesnout nests are normally an unphotogenic mess of eggs, algal growth, and white fluid used to bind the mass to the kelp. When I saw this nest, I was ecstatic because of how clean it was. Clusters of tiny jewels carefully spaced among the crooks of a young Giant Kelp stipe perfectly encapsulating new beginnings and the next generation in Monterey Bay.

Location: Monterey, California, USA

Equipment Used: Nikon D850, Nikon 60mm Macro Lens, Dual Sea & Sea YS-D2 Strobes

Camera Settings: ISO 250, F14, 1/160 sec
