3rd Place Nudibranch

Jenny Stock

"Spotlight Nudibranch"



Jenny Stock won a 2-night stay in a luxury ocean view room for two at the Presidente Intercontinental Cozumel Resort & Spa!


The Story: 

Teamwork makes the dream work! I captured this spotlight nudibranch as a silhouette on the back of a fallen leaf in the beautiful warm waters of Tulamben, Bali. My exceptionally talented guide (and torch shiner), Ajiex Dharma, and I, discussed our aims for this image before we submerged. However, underwater we were faced with interesting obstacles, such as angle of torch beam, leaf vein thickness, and size of nudibranch. Expressive underwater communication and signaling between Ajiex and I (whilst underwater), was key to us getting the shot.
