Diptych on the theme of a coral sea commissioned for a converted crab factory in Helmsdale, North East Scotland, UK. An octopus sits under an umbrella coral, bright fish swim around and the sun light feeds the corals, in a balanced ecology. While researching this picture I learned a lot about coral seas, and how nurseries growing corals are helping to counteract coral reefs under threat from polution, over-fishing, and changes in sea chemistry and temperature. This picture is dedicated to those who try to conserve our natural heritage.
