A Classic Scene
Diving in the kelp forest is probably one of my favorite life experiences. It really never gets old. The water clarity on my recent trip was pretty good, too, which always helps. Southern California kelp has a distinct luminosity to it that differs than the kelp I usually see in the Monterey Bay. This image is from the south end of San Clemente island of the Channel Islands.

I suggest switching to "earth" view and zooming out.
