Photographer's Note

The "Two Oceans Aquarium" in Cape Town has not stolen his name.
The southern tip of Africa is the meeting place of two mighty oceans, the Indian and the Atlantic. The Two Oceans Aquarium showcases the incredible diversity of marine flora and fauna found in these rich oceans. Over 8000 living animals, including fishes, mammals, birds and invertebrates can be seen in this marine kaleidoscope.
The 'two oceans' theme is illustrated by spectacular exhibits, ranging from vibrant displays of Indian Ocean tropical fishes to the magnificent 800,000 litre Kelp Forest Exhibit, which you see here and is one of only two living kelp forests on display in the world.
The Kelp Forest Tank is open to the sun at the top and featured immense stalks of kelp that swayed back and forth in the artificial current just like the trees in a forest would move in the wind.
