Abstract Coral Patterns by Alexander Semenov

  • Posted by SHFT on August 12, 2013 in Photography
  • Alexander Semenov, a Russian biologist and underwater photographer, has gained plenty of well-deserved internet fame for his otherworldly images of jellyfish and other equally alien marine wildlife. His photographic exploration of underwater forms continues with Living Stones, a new series highlighting the patterns and textures of coral lifeforms in the Red Sea. The macro images, spotted on Twisted Sifter, capture the intricate details and wild colors of these fascinating creatures. 

    With a coastal reef complex extending some 1,240 miles (2,000 kilometers) of shoreline, the Red Sea is a good place to photograph coral. Home to more than 200 soft and hard corals, the saltwater inlet has the highest diversity of coral reefs of any section of the Indian Ocean.
