Fish’s View of Light and “Stars”

Fish's View of Light and "Stars"

Nancy took this picture while we were snorkeling around the lighthouse trying to get over-and-under shots. She sank five feet to sit on the bottom and aim her camera toward the surface. The weather was almost calm, with small waves just big enough to distort the image. In this picture it looks like the lighthouse is lit, but that is really the early morning sun reflecting off the glass. What appears to be stars are really small bubbles or particles floating on the surface, also lit by the sun. These features were indeed serendipitous.
