Sea currents caused by tides are powerful. This is especially apparent in the coastal zone at shallow depths. Sitting on the bottom I am at risk of being blown away along with my easel and palette or being thrown from side to side by the surf.

Notably, the indigenous inhabitants of the sea also find it difficult to resist this force. The fish find their natural shelters in the form of a rock or coral. It is easier for clownfish, their mobile house is always nearby. This fish can stand with its face against the current and catch food flying into its mouth. In the case of being tired, it can hide in an anemone. The tentacles of the anemone are moving rhythmically left-right and blowing like hair in the wind.

P.S. Underwater artist Olga Belka thanks the Anantara group and especially the Anantara Dhugu resort in the Maldives for hospitality, full assistance, and support, as well as the Aquafanatics dive center for safety and the best diving conditions when creating this underwater artwork.
