Overview

Dos Winkel's photographs introduce us to the wondrous world under the surgace of the ocean that is teeming with life, color, and motion. Fantastically shaped corals take on endless variations while brightly-colored vases and blankets of sponges litter the ocean floor. Throughout the more than one hundred full-page images in this book, the mystery, beauty, and pulsating life of the world's coral reefs are shown in their magnificent splendor. Coupled with an informative text on the ecology of coral reefs as well as a preface by Jean-Michel Couteau, the book is a reminder that some of the biggest wonders of the universe lie waiting to be discovered on our own planet.

At first, I thought the cover photo was a tropical island surrounded by azure waters and sand bars, perhaps a volcanic crater with a cone and center rising above sea level. Then I looked closer and saw it's a fish eye. The photos in this book are interesting not simply because they offer a unique view of animal life in the sea but also because they are artistically beautiful in an abstract way. Highly recommended.
