Animals: Deep Sea Creatures
I want to give credit to one of the amazing artists who is doing this cutting edge photography. His name is Peter Batson and he has a fantastic site called www.exploretheabyss.com . What he is doing is showing us things which no humans have ever seen in all of history. some artists have powers to entertain and others have the power to open our minds to things we had no idea about. We at conceptart.org appreciate the work which the scientists and deep sea photographers are doing as it is they who are showing us things which we could previously only imagine.
Please credit artists and sources if you know who else has taken these images for us to see and share.
Just found this link on metafilter. The fish are wickedly surreal:
World's giant squid capitol
Here's a site with amazing photography in a general sense, including these. Tasmania has had four giant squid carcasses wash ashore in recent years:
And this bizarre squid photograph, apparently self-triggered at a depth of 200 metres off Heard Island in the sub-Antarctic earlier this year.
