Colourful creatures

The stunning pictures, taken off the coast of Hawaii, were taken in the dead of night with a special flash to give a wonderful display of colours. Among the ‘colour x-ray’ style images are pictures of rare squids, jellyfish and shrimp.  photographer Joshua Lambus

Measuring just a few centimetres in length they can be found living off the coast of Kailua-Kona.



Joshua Lambus took the picture and believes he has been on more than 400 ‘blackwater’ dives.

The 25-year-old had the idea after becoming frustrated with running charters for divers who just wanted to see turtles, dolphins and whales.

To get the unique images, Joshua waits until nightfall to head out about three miles on a boat. He then cuts the engine and dives into the water.
