Photo Challenge: Ocean-ography

Oceanographers are people who study the ocean – and JPG wants you to do the same. Whether it's catching some waves, catching some fish, or catching some sun, show us what’s in, on, or around the world’s deep blue seas.

For this photo challenge, get out your cameras for JPG’s study of ocean photography, or ocean-ography!

The world's attention has been focused these last six weeks on our oceans as up to 1 million gallons of crude oil continue to leak daily* off the Gulf of Mexico from the worst oil spill in US history. The images that have captured this horrible disaster remind us of the importance of our oceans, how fragile this ecosystem is, and the impact photography can have.
