Under The Sea

Many years ago, I had the wonderful opportunity to live in the Solomon Islands in the South Pacific. One of the main pastimes was diving, so we completed our certificates and I spent three years diving once or twice a week.

I couldn’t believe the spectacular colourful world that lay beneath the surface of the warm water.

The sea was full of life in the form of colourful coral, fish, turtles and sharks.

Teeming with life and colour

But it was the tiny, weeny Nudibranches that I loved to find. These small “sea slugs” are the most colourful creatures on earth.

If you think you’ve seen a strange or unusual colour combination then it may very well have been inspired by these creatures.
