Miguel Oliveira Corynactis viridis Portugal - Nazaré Powershot A590 + Inon Z240 + Subsee 10+ 1/400, F5,5 All in manual mode. This picture is rotated 180º from the original. It was taken on a celling of a wall at a deep of 20mts, with the nearest bottom at 30 mts, so I didn´t have any site where I could grab or orient myself (because it´s dark). In my point of view I don´t like much the frame because I cut a little bit of the tentacles. I could center it better. Problably it could be showing less the other anemonies to center more the atention. But I like to read your opinion, please. Thanks

Andrew Cleave Jewel Anemones - Corynactis viridis - Scilly

Andy Horton Peering into a rock pool?

David Wilson I misread this at first.

Bernard Picton A bit off-topic, but this is worth listening to...

David Ainsley Dear Bernard, Do you have contact details for Dick Manuel, Alan Brittain, Mia Beuhr, Tony Hunt, Steve Redfern and Ken Vaughan, who were on a seasearch survey in the Firth of Lorne in 1983? I am trying to find out if anybody remembers the exact location of the 'unusually large and colourful colony of Corynactis viridis' in Cuan Sound. I have the seasearch report. I have already spoken to Norma Brandt and Shelagh Smith. David Ainsley On 27 Sep 2012, at 09:25, Bernard Picton wrote:
