A silhouette from the underground viewing room of the Seal enclosure – Melbourne Zoo
I rarely visit the seal underground viewing room at Melbourne Zoo. Moving through the chamber is pretty much pitch black and I’m paranoid about falling over and hurting my back which is so fragile.
But other than that, there’s not much to see unless the seals are swimming by in front of the glass window. I turned around after I went up the sloping ramp to find the floor covered with a lovely blue light and visitors silhouetted against the blue water shining in the viewing window.
Now, I wonder, why didn’t the Zoo have visitors walking in the other direction so the floor could be easily seen, instead of the dark, almost invisible path that the current entrance/exit follows?
I took a few photos just before I walked out into the bright sunny day, not sure whether they would turn out, but relieved to get 4 out 4 images when I downloaded them. I quite liked this image below.
