A kelp forest grew in the shallow water just off the shore of West Anacapa Island. Sunlight reflecting off the water appeared to make the kelp shine.

Tufts of kelp floated in a pattern that resembled golden eyebrows. Almost as if the faces of giants had just sunk from sight.

Thin strands of kelp lay on the water in a pattern that looked like children's scribbles.

The top of a kelp forest created an odd effect where its strands just barely touched the water's surface.
