Synopsis: Wild Seas, Secret Shores of Africa offers a breathtakingly beautiful underwater journey around the African coast. The images portray all major marine habitats, from kelp forests to coral reefs, and feature a range of marine species in action, from iconic apex predators like great white and tiger sharks, whales and dolphins, to the lesser-known but equally fascinating creatures such as jellyfish and starfish. Each photograph tells a story or provides a fresh look at a familiar subject; together they make a resounding statement for marine conservation.
Each picture is repeated as a thumbnail in the second half and a photo story and photo specs are given. Through this unique and useful resource, readers gain insight into how the pictures were taken, and what the camera settings were-enhancing their own photo-adventures.
