The ocean is the lifeblood of Earth, covering more than 70 percent of the planet’s surface, driving weather, regulating temperature, and ultimately supporting all living organisms. Throughout history, the ocean has been a vital source of sustenance, transport, commerce, growth, and inspiration.

Yet for all of our reliance on the ocean, 95 percent of this realm remains unexplored, unseen by human eyes. Much remains to be learned about the mystery of the Ocean.

However, the advancement in Science and Technology has taken man deeper and more is being known about the species of the ocean on a daily basis. The five percent identified so far has been encouraging, giving Humanity an evolving and developmental  view of Marine life.

Below are the photos of my encounter down there… Let’s enjoy them together..

    Under the sea
    Under the sea
    Darling it’s better
    Down where it’s wetter
    Take it from me
    Up on the shore they work all day
    Out in the sun they slave away
    While we devotin’
    Full time to floatin’
    Under the sea
