Challenge: Seeing the Unseen (Advanced Editing V*)
Camera: Canon PowerShot SD800 IS
Location: Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt
Date: Dec 1, 2007
Aperture: f2.8
ISO: ?
Shutter: 1/60
Galleries: Nature
Date Uploaded: Dec 4, 2007

A very well camouflaged scorpionfish, hiding amongst the soft corals on a reef approx 10m deep in the Red Sea, Egypt, where I was combining my two favourite hobbies, diving & photography.

Got several good shots of him but liked this one with the texture of his frilly face against the equally frilly corals. Shame he looks so miserable.

Title comes from Monty Python, in case anyone was wondering ...

Set white balance, upped contrast a smidge, sharpened, cropped a teensy bit, save for web.
