Distorted

3 Mar

This was quite the tough photo challenge topic.  I had to look through all the photos that I had filed!  But I found a beauty of a photo.

This was taken at Colchester Zoo in the Playa Patagonia Tunnel.  This is, apparently, the largest straight underwater tunnel in Europe!  It was an amazing experience walking through this tunnel with the Patagonian sealions swimming back and forth overhead!

    Nice job, although I think that would give me claustrophobia—all that water on top of my head. The Omaha, Nebraska Zoo has a tunnel like that, although not nearly so long, from what you’re saying. I could at least see the other end.

      It might seem claustrophobic, and I must admit, at the time I was feeling it slightly. But it was only because there were a considerable amount of people in the tunnel on the day we went to visit the zoo. It was, mostly, a surreal experience! I really want to go again soon!

        What’s fun about these huge zoos is that you can hardly take it all in in a single day. It makes coming back all the more exciting. Unfortunately, the Omaha zoo is now several hours away by car. I’d love to get back there. It’s the best zoo by far that I’ve ever been to.
