I officially sold an underwater photo print. Of course it is one of my favorites-a bleached anemone with the resident anemone fish from Komodo, Indonesia 2013. Unbelievable because I am really a scientist, not an artist by training. Although it has been argued that I am not the artist-it is of course nature “who” is the artist.
The scientist part of me (it is still in there) has to explain that anemones have a symbiotic algae which gives them their color just like coral. This one has lost the symbiotic algae due to extended high temperatures in all likelihood. Generally it is a temporary condition in this part of the world.
