Inter tidal seaweed covered rocks in Belle Greve Bay, Guernsey
This is a view from the southern end of Belle Greve Bay looking across the Little Russel (the passage between Guernsey and the islands of Herm and Jethou) towards the island of Sark on the horizon and the taller island of Jethou on the left. The rocks in the foreground are draped with the brown seaweed, thongweed, Himanthalia elongata, and there are clumps of the red seaweed, Mastocarpus stellatus.
Photographed with a 2.8 megapixel Olympus camera on the 9th March 2004.
Sealord photography's biodiversity images began with a focus on international commercial seafood species and the marine life of the Bailiwick of Guernsey, Great Britain.
Sealord photography has a growing collection of digital images covering climate change, the environment and sustainability issues.
Sealord photography also covers the Guernsey community and particularly the fund raising activities of Guernsey charities as part of the island's social sustainability.
The fish, shellfish and marine life images would not be possible if it were not for the generosity of commercial and recreational fishermen in Guernsey, and seafood suppliers at various trade shows in the USA, and wholesalers at Fulton Fish Market in New York City.
Many marine biologists have helped identify or confirm the identity of marine species photographed. These people have been mentioned when possible.
