Breathtaking Underwater Photography

Outer space may be the final frontier, but humanity knows almost as little about the depths of our oceans as the depths of space.

Humanity knows almost as little about the depths of the oceans as the depths of outer space. Earth’s oceans have fascinated humanity for millenia, resulting in a variety of myths from the Earth being flat with the oceans simply pouring off into space, the kraken and mermaids. Beyond the myths, however, lies an incredible variety of life and color.

Today we’ll take a closer look on what we can find under the clear blue waters of the oceans. And here’re some breathtaking underwater photos, captured by talented photographers. From Clownfish that look surprisingly like Nemo (see the picture above), to jellyfish, sharks and crabs, you’ll get a glimpse of some of the life that thrives just beneath the surface. [via 1x]
