Picture of the Day: Jellyfish Kiss Under the Castle
Photo and caption by Adriano Morettin
This summer there was a significant presence of this type of jellyfish (Rhyzostoma pulmo and Cothyloriza tuberculata) in the Adriatic Sea in front of Trieste where I live. So I immediately thought to photograph with the backdrop of Miramare Castle which is one of the most beautiful castles overlooking the sea in the world. I struggled to get two jellyfish in a favorable position close to the surface in order to obtain the image of the castle in transparency. I used my beloved Nikon D800E with the Sigma 15mm fisheye in Seacam housing with the Superdome and two flash Seacam 150. (c) Adriano MorettinPhoto LocationTrieste, Italy, northern Adriatic Sea.
