Scenic Sunday - Seattle Aquarium

Down near the waterfront Seattle has a good aquarium. First I'll show a scenic view from the aquarium, for the Scenic Sunday meme.
We saw divers through the glass, talking to a group of schoolchildren.
There was a pool in which people could touch starfish and other saltwater creatures.
The highlight was the undersea dome, through which all kinds of creatures could be viewed.
From this dome it was possible to look up at the surface of the water.
And finally, I think this is a seal of some kind.
This aquarium makes for a very fun day out, especially with children.

  7. I completely agree! Fun!

    I like your octopus and divers shot. The suckers are fascinating. Our aquarium didn't have an octopus the last time we visited and I've never seen one in person.

    But of all the photos, I think I love the seal best. He's obviously swimming but your shot makes him look like he's just floating peacefully. And the dappled light is so beautiful!

  8. Beautiful close ups of the sea life. I also simply love mountains and water and you've captured both :-)

  9. The juxtaposition of your starfish and dome shots makes me wonder if they modeled the dome on the starfish design, or if it was happy accident.

  13. It's hard to get a good clear shot of the divers in the tank, but you've managed to get a really great one! Seattle Aquarium is a fun place to take photos.
