Silent Sunday – Jellyfish

When I look back on my trip to the USA in 2015 there are some places that really stand out. So today for my silent Sunday post I thought I would post some photos of jellyfish that were from one of those places.

Silent Sunday – Jellyfish

On any trip, there are only so many places you can go to. I really didn’t think I would get a chance to go to Monterey Bay Aquarium.  My husband went there a number of years ago and raved about it, so I knew it was a place I would like to visit, but wasn’t sure there would be enough time.

One of the last days I spent with my friends there we decided to just do it. We didn’t have a lot of time but decided to see what we could get.

It is such an amazing place. Aquariums are very interesting places.

I enjoyed all I saw there, but the one part that I loved was the room with all the different tanks full of jellyfish. I spent a lot of time photographing them. They were mesmerising.

So today I have got some of the images I took when I was in that room. I would love to go back with my current camera and do them again. Maybe one day.

    Hi Leanne. As soon as you said US and jellyfish I figured it had to be the Monterrey Aquarium. That was my best memory of my one visit as well. Love your photos as always.

  8. These are sure cool creatures

  9. Oh, my! First of all, I’m so glad you got to visit that aquarium. It is one of my favorites, for a lot of reasons. And your shots are just amazing. Guess what? They have live cams on the jellyfish (and other installations). The jellies are so relaxing to watch! https://www.montereybayaquarium.org/animals-and-exhibits/live-web-cams/jelly-cam

  11. They sting like the dickens, but the images are gorgeous, Leanne.

  12. Leanne, I am forwarding this post to one of the foremost jellyfish experts in the world to see. Beautiful photography as always.
