Ascending Through Bubbles

A freediver emerges through a plume of bubbles.

Photographer Lucie Pollet caught this image of her freediving friend ascending through a plume of bubbles and sunlight. I love the otherworldliness of the image, like the diver is an astronaut in the dark of space. The illumination of the bubbles is spectacular, too, and reminds me of the way penguins use supercavitation to help escape predators. (Image credit: L. Pollet; via Oceanographic Magazine)
