The winning images in the Dorset Wildlife Trust’s Dorset Seasearch Underwater Photography Competition have been revealed.
Designed to capture telling images of the little-known world under the seas around Dorset’s coast, the winning image was taken by Nick Owen off the coast of Portland and depicted a solitary hyrbid corymorpha nutans – an anemone-like creature that lives in gravelly areas or on rocks. The runner-up images were two photographs of sea sponges, and a conger eel.
The photographs submitted to the competition will be used by the Seasearch programme to help with the documentation and preservation of Dorset’s wildlife.
You can read the full story and see the photographs in the Bournemouth Echo.
