Shadow Shot Sunday #197 ~ New England Aquarium

Leafy Sea Dragon
This is my friend Maria next to what I believe is a Goliath Grouper.
Here is another picture of the fish I've identified as a Goliath Grouper.  If anyone can identify this fish as other than a Grouper, please make sure to tell me in your comment, so I can change this label!

Sea Turtle (Really HUGE!)

Last week Patrick and I spent in the Boston area.  While our husbands went to school, my friend, Maria and I took the train to the New England Aquarium in Boston(as well as a side trip to a shopping plaza).  The aquarium was quite amazing and afforded me plenty of Shadow Shots.  I took about 100 photos inside the aquarium, but many didn't turn out as good as I had hoped.  Either my flash made a glare or when I turned off the flash the slow shutter speed made them a blur.  Oh well, I hope these photos that I've posted aren't too hard to look at.

For additional Shadow Shots please swim over to our host blog HERE.  This week, playing hostess to our international group, is the lovely Gemma, from Melbourne, Australia.  I hope that all who visit here are blessed in some small (or large!) way.Please come again.

love, Cassie

I love aquariums!!! These are great shots, my favorite being the Sea Dragon. :)

I didn't think grouper were that big...we are used to shadows that fall on the ground, yet you show that shadows only need a bit of light, even under water. I like the stylish jellyfish - in the tank and not stinging us at the beach...

Funny! The photo I have today is from our botanical gardens which also has an aquarium that I have similar pictures to yours of! The seahorse, the sea turtle, the jellyfish. Very difficult to photograph unless you took a tripod with you (I didn't). Great job!

I think it is a grouper - they can be much bigger than that! I love all the colours!

My daughter has lived in Boston for 5 years now. I go over once or twice a year, and have yet to go the aquarium. There is so much to do and see around that area!

Gemma Wiseman said...

Incredible how there can be intriguing underwater shadows! These are beautiful views of fish + turtles and their shadowy environment!

Busy Bee Suz said...

I am just wondering... when are you and Patrick going to take a swim to south Florida???
I love all your photos...the turtles and I are kindred spirits!
As for the fish? Not sure what exactly he is, but you had the GOLIATH part correct!

Great pictures, Cassie! We have a really nice Aquarium in Baltimore, too. Your pictures make me realize that I haven't gone in a while, and should.

Cassie,
Nice aquarium photos. Aquarium photos can present several challenges.
