Marine biologist, Alexander Semenov, works at the White Sea Biological Station (WSBS) in northwest Russia and has posted over 900 photos of the undersea life around the station. The most captivating are of Cyanea capillata, or the hair jellyfish. Semenov changes his shooting angle to set the creatures against a backdrop that makes them seem like they’re aloft in the sky. Have a look at some of his images of Cynea in the sky after the jump.

To answer a Flickr user’s question of “How the hell did you manage to shoot this and get the sky in it?” Semenov simply stated, “Just look up.” More of Semenov’s undersea photos can be found on Flickr.
