Under The Sea IPad Background

Under sea aquarium photography.

Sunlight brings warmth and life. Sydney Aquarium.

Aquariums can reap a wealth of good photos for the keen photographer, but sometimes the lighting just isn’t right. In larger aquariums, such as the Sydney Aquarium on Darling Harbour, the huge walkthrough tanks normally have places where the lighting is just right. All the photographer then has to do is position oneself in the right spot to take advantage of this good light and wait. Something will come past that will be worth your patience.

While there are many sights that a travel photographer can capture in and around Sydney, we always take the time out of our itinerary to visit the Sydney Aquarium and the Taronga Zoo. Both give up many first class photos that can be used in various projects such as this one supplying IPad backgrounds, plus the simple act of slowing down and enjoying the various creatures calms our busy lives and enriches our inner beings.

Personally, I can spend all day at the Sydney Aquarium. There is something so peaceful watching fish and other marine creatures going about their chores, completely oblivious to the masses of tourists sticking their noses on the fish tanks. Too often we rush here, there and everywhere in our pursuit at living fruitful lives we forget to slow down and enjoy nature first hand. What is really enjoyable in large Aquariums is the fact that they have simulated actual living reefs, so what you see is almost exactly what a scuba diver would experience under the sea.

Remember when visiting larger cities, allow yourself some free time from those hectic guided tours. Slow down and spend a few hours just relaxing in attractions such as the Sydney Aquarium or the cities zoos. Don’t rush past each display, pause for some time and really see what you are looking at. There is therapy in watching nature and you may be amazed at the quality of photograph you can capture if you really take notice and have patience.
