That photo is by Nick Lucey, host and producer of upcoming seasons of “Into the Drink,” currently shown on National Geographic International. The image came our way via “Diver Laura” James, who explains:

The two huge balls of light are a couple of the videographers from the show; they are hoping to have a Northwest episode this season and some of the footage they shot will hopefully be in it… I was taking them on a tour of Seacrest Cove 2. We were visited repeatedly by a beautiful harbor seal and treated at the end of the dive by massive schools of fast moving herring. So if folks were walking along the shoreline last night, and saw the lights in the shallows, that is what was going on!

  7. Fantastic shot. Love the colors of the skyline in yellows and the divers in green and blue.

  8. Night diving here may also show you a school of squid that turn from invisible to all colors in seconds right before your eyes or maybe the planets biggest octopus who come out at night to dine. They are very curious and if you move slow and do your best not to be threatening the may interact with you. They seem to have an uncanny knack to know when you mean harm and this will reflect in their behavior. Very beautiful.
