pink coral

The Oakland Museum's recently renovated natural history gallery highlights the ecology of several specific locations in California.  This is a still shot of a video about the coral reefs of the Cordell Bank which is a marine sanctuary off the coast just north of San Francisco.  The colors astonished me given that the waters off Northern California are very cold.  Who knew there was a kaleidoscope of color under the surface of the water?  This is my contribution to this month's City Daily Photo Theme Day:  pink.  Please follow the link to see Theme Day contributions from around the world.
