08-03-06 beneath its glassy surface.....

....a world of gliding monsters

FINALLY managed to make a quick trip to London Aquarium, under county hall in London. Its not far
from the Houses of Parliament, or the London eye. You may have seen it featured in "Closer",
where Clive Owen meets Julia Roberts.

I managed to fill a 1 gig c/f card while I was there, so I hope you appreciate the self restraint
shown here to only post a handfull. This wasn't the best shark photo of the day, but I loved the
shape of its body here. Full of power, grace and menace. The original was far sharper, but I
wanted the sense of movement, and didn't know how to retain the sharpness, whilst keeping the
movement coming back to its eye and mouth.

I wasn't sure whether to post this one, or the other entry for today, as the PAD - let me know
what you like best.

And thank-you for all the votes, and nice comments on yesterdays shot.

Love what you've done here in a difficult situation. I could never get anything approaching this in Monterey. Vote.
