The Underwater Photographer of the Year reported for 2019. And also, the triumphant pictures offer a charming broadness of the shoreline. For the fourth year straight, the photography contest has spoken to various parts of the sea through the classifications. Champs picked through in 14 fields including, Wide Angle, Macro, Behavior, and Portrait.
Each winning picture, grandstands can see a part of the underwater world. Some photos feature the fascinating animals, who hide below the surface while others give respect to the loftiness of enormous well-evolved creatures. As an example, whales and seals. Every picture has a critical message to the society. Eduardo Acevedo won the Marine Conservation Photographer of the Year. It is for his piercing view of a Caretta caretta turtle fighting to liberate itself from a net. It is a fantastic update that we have to save the animals that live in the sea. It gives us actualizing economical fishing rehearses and also reducing to the use of plastics.
Who won the most significant award this year? That honor goes to Richard Barnden for his picture named The Gauntlet. That picture includes an action-packed situation of a shark encouraging frenzy at the Fakarava South Pass in French Polynesia.700 sharks are watching the mouth of the channel by day and the evening time chasing around. The most important part was a Bardon was there to see it.
“The gauntlet is about to unfold,” Bardon describes. “When I am descending into the darkness, I can feel my heart beating a little faster than normal because hundreds of sharks are now covering the bottom. However, this unlucky parrotfish dodged in and out of the patch coral heads looking for somewhere to hide. The sharks followed in pursuit. One grey reef shark suddenly grabbed the parrotfish by its head. And he tries another twisted underneath it to get a better grip. Desperation sharks are hurtled straight towards me as I snapped a few passing shots. And curled up into a round as the frenzy of sharks passes the shots. They are leaving only a few falling parrotfish scales behind.”
