Blue Crystal 2 - Vancouver, British Columbia (Explored)

Blue Crystal 2 - Vancouver, British Columbia (Explored)
This is the next shot in my jellyfish series. Once again, I was experimenting with my macro lens in low light conditions. However, this shot is a bit brighter than my last one. The jellyfish glided through the water in and out of the light, making photographing them both interesting and challenging. :) The photo was taken in December 2013, with my trusty Olympus digital camera. Enjoy.
