Underwater love in beautiful images was captured on June 8Th, in a way to celebrate the World Oceans Day with the help of hi-end technology delivered by Google. 40 underwater “street view” locations, including some fascinating ones in the Great Barrier Reef in Australia were captured by more than . Consequently they were admired and savored by enchanted eyes who didn’t ever have the chance to see such beautiful wonders exist in the world.
Pretty images nearly untouched by the holy brushes of Photoshop were released to roam freely on the internet and make us dream with open eyes and admire the entire diversity of nature.
Google has launched the XL Catlin Seaview project that aims to create a modern encyclopedia, offering us the view of the world’s coral reefs in high resolution, 360 degree panoramic vision. The cameras managed to capture and surround wide areas, being launched in 20 different spots in the Great Barrier Reef.
The wonderful sets of images have been making waves of translucent blue online, improving the face of the world around us. There is still a lot of yet unseen beauty in the universe and this time Google has been working on a very good cause.
We start becoming increasingly aware that biodiversity is shrinking as global warming and industrialization have conquered wild areas. An increasing number of natural habitats are affected by human intervention. Now the Great Barrier Reef is touched by human presence, sharing with the entire world the inapproachable depths of the ocean.
The new wild nature report by Google will help scientists closely observe the changes our ecosystems have been subjected to and analyze the effects of the past on our modern times. The changes caused by our past and our present behavior may be leading to solutions or alternatives for caring and preserving what is yet very much alive, diverse and rich in life, for a better future.
The pictures also offer us the chance to enjoy an imaginary dive into the oceans directly from Google Streetview. The fish and corals that leave beneath the sea will be revealed in high resolution, showing us that life imitates art and it can be of all shapes, colors, volumes and sizes, unfolding in perfect symbiosis and balance.
That is a thought people should more often hold on to and Google did a good job in reminding us that fascinating beauty still exists, even if most of us can only see it in pretty pictures rather than experience it.
Natural resources are a priceless value of nature that must be protected, taken care of and admired from a distance, in order to allow the space for growth and evolution. The Great Barrier Reef along with many other unique landscapes in the world are threatened by heavy consumption that slowly takes over all the virgin, wild and pure places and although Google invites us to further explore them, some things must be left untouched and enjoyed exactly as they are, displaying close-to-perfection perspectives.
