UPY 2016 Macro - Highly Commended
'Timeless Moment!' - Behnaz Afsahi

Jellyfish Lake was one of the highlights of my trip to Palau. SCUBA diving is not allowed in this lake, so I was free diving when I took this photo. The thousands of jellyfish in this lake are simply breathtaking to behold, but made it challenging to find one in isolation. With the sunlight above me I finally managed to capture this single jellyfish, while the rays of light passing down through the water illuminated the multitude of its brethren, creating the backdrop I was trying to achieve.
