National Marine Aquarium

By TrevBatWCC    
At the bottom end of Plymouth's Sutton Harbour there is a swing footbridge which takes you across from the Barbican to the east side of the harbour, where there is the National Marine Aquarium. Opened in May 1998, it is the largest aquarium in the United Kingdom (its largest tank contains 2.5 million litres of water) and has a total of over 400 species of sea creatures. I'd loved to have visited it inside, but with only about 40 minutes left before our boat trip, just had time to grab a few images from outside.
The first version shows the wider view, and from the same spot zoomed in on the artwork to the left of the entrance for the two images in the montage. V2 & V3 were taken from around the right-hand side.

Raw images processed in Adobe Camera Raw, tweaked in Nik Collection's Viveza 2 and Photoshop Elements 14.

Thanks again to everyone for your votes & comments on my previous uploads, it really is appreciated and encouraging 👍

If the lead image shows lifelike representations of the contents of the tanks, then there are a lot of psychedelic marine species I have never seen - not even in an lsd-indused state!

Great series of this interesting building, all those curves remind me of waves, and the colourful marine life is beautiful.
