  Giant Kelp Forests

This 700 Megapixel image is cropped from the 2.77 gigapixel master image produced for the Aquarium of the Pacific. The full image is reproduced in glass panels 13ft high X 126 ft wide and stands in front of the aquarium in Long Beach, California.  Giant Kelp Forest are truly amazing ecosystems but are very challenging to photograph.  This project took over 100 dives and more than 1200 individual photographs are used in the final image.
