Once in a blue moon or so, something comes along that really knocks your socks off. Watching Felix Baumbartner free fall from space or viewing time-lapse imagery of retreating glaciers, like Columbia and Solheimajokull come to mind.
And now you can add Underwater Colors of the Channel Islands a soon to be released book by award winning photographers Antonio Busiello and Cesare Naldi to that list! Underwater Colors of the Channel Islands is a stunning, limited-edition photography book displaying the colorful and exotic marine life in the waters along the Channel Islands. For a limited time, the book is available exclusively through Kickstarter along with other items unique to the Kickstarter campaign.
Because a percentage of the proceeds from the sale of the book will be donated to Channel Islands Park Foundation you can help your favorite National Park while at the same time, explore its beauty and diversity from the comfort of your living room!
We asked Mr Busiello how the book's cover image came to be.
"The idea was to show in one single picture the beauty of Anacapa Island above and below the water. It took me many attempts. I needed great visibility, strong sun in the sky and calm water for the reflection of the arch on the ocean surface. After many visits and many failed tries, finally on a beautiful day in October the conditions were perfect! I jumped in the water and got the shot I had waited so long to capture!"
You can imagine the time and patience needed to compile the imagery for a project like Underwater Colors of the Channel Islands. And now through the power of crowd funding sites like Kickstarter you can be a part of bringing the project to print!
