To celebrate the start of Google’s underwater Street View efforts, we have collected quite a few pictures we’re sure you’ll never find there. But wouldn’t it be a surprise if you did? We had that kind of bycatch a few years ago, when it came to the first iteration of Street View already. Perhaps they accidentally caught some fish with their pants down this time? We don’t know…
There are so many ways that the world around us can take on a whole new look with a little change in perspective. This is one of the things that photographers specialize in. Applying that perspective for us through their artistic captures, underwater photography is a prime example of this. When photographers take their cameras below the surface of the water, so many amazing things can happen. And so many amazing pictures can surface.
Below we have a collection that is sure to inspire, that is filled with stunning photographs captured underwater. From the wildlife that rules over the underwater kingdom, to the models and fashion submerged into the water’s depths to bring new life and context to their artistry, photographers produce some breathtaking pieces by simply looking beneath the surface.
