2020 Underwater Photographer of the Year Winners



The surreal picture above is titled "Frozen mobile home." It won French photographer Greg Lacoeur the title of Underwater Photographer of the Year for 2020. The caption:

Massive and mysterious habitats, icebergs are dynamic kingdoms that support marine life. As they swing and rotate slowly through polar currents, icebergs fertilize the oceans by carrying nutrients from land that spark blooms of phytoplankton, fundamental to the carbon cycle. During an expedition in Antarctica Peninsula with filmmaker Florian Fisher and freediver Guillaume Nery, we explored and documented the hidden face of this iceberg where crab-eater seals have taken up residence on icebergs that drift at the whim of polar currents.

Lacoeur's photograph also won the Wide Angle category. See the winners in each category at PetaPixel, and browse through all the top-placing images at the contest gallery. -via Digg
