SEA LIFE Minnesota Aquarium in the Mall of America

My alternate title would be Stingray, Jelly Fish and Sharks, Oh My! See the full SEA LIFE gallery.

I enjoyed a return trip to SEA LIFE Aquarium in the Mall of America. As a photographer I often hope these places will be empty so I can get good shots without a mass of people. On a Friday it was pretty busy but not so much where I couldn’t maneuver.

The underwater statues are really cool to see. I wish they had a few more. They really should have a guy in a diving bell suit.

The sharks, fish and even a sea turtle can swim direcly overhead too. You can see more photos in my previous gallery here Sea Life Aquarium.

The Moon Jelly room is one of the coolest areas. The lights cycle through different colors illuminating the jelly fish in the tanks.

If you will be taking photos be sure to bring a fast lens and prepare to shoot at high ISO. It’s lower light than you realize and some of the fish and sharks move pretty fast. Also get your camera as close to the glass as possible to minimize reflections.

Here’s the link to the official site if you’re interested in visiting.
