Underwater Photography 55/365 Anthias in the Dark

“Anthias in the Dark” Project Picture 55/365

Nikon D90   Nikkon 60 mm   1/250   f/16.0   ISO 100

Promise delivered, on my 20th post of this 365 days project I showed you a picture of a Swallowtail Seaperch “Anthias Anthias” commonly named three tails here in Spain, I mentioned that I was trying to shoot it with a nice black surrounding which I did not achieve as it had a rock background, but here you have it different fish but black and ready !!!

This type of fish normally  lives in depths between 25-200 meters  but sometimes you can find them in  more shallow waters hidden on a rock or cove, as they look for shadow areas. In this occasion he was at arround 27-30 metres and for a second swam on to the blue allowing me to capture it surrounded by blue water, with which by using a speed of 1/250 you get the blue color water changed into black.

These are amongst the more colorful fishes you can find in the mediterranean so I knew that with a black background the fish color will look much nicer.

Promesa cumplida, en mi post número 20 de este proyecto de 365 días publiqué una foto de un Tres Colas “Anthias Anthias”, mi intención era haberle sacado con completamente rodeado de un fondo de color negro, cosa que no pude lograr por que tenía un fondo de roca detrás, pero problema resuelto aquí lo tenéis distinto pez pero con el fondo en negro !!!

Estos peces mormalmente viven en profundidades de entre 25-200 metros, pero a veces los encuentras en aguas menos profundas ocultos en una piedra o pequeña cueva , ya que buscan zonas oscuras.En esta ocasión estaba en unos  27-30 metros y por un segundo nadó en la azul permitiéndome captarlo rodeado de aguas azules y con lo que selecionando una velocidad de 1 / 250  consigue que el color del agua cambie de color azul al negro.

Es uno de los peces más coloridos que se pueden encontrar en el Mediterráneo, así que sabía que con un fondo negro sus colores resaltarían mucho más.
