Fear of things that are bigger under water than they are above water.

This picture gives me the creeps. Would you want to be swimming near it?

Both my dad and I share this fear, but it is so rare that it does not have a name. When I'm swimming in the ocean and I see a small rock just peeping above the water then I go under water and see that it is HUGE, for some reason it gives me the creeps. Large things like barrier reefs and underwater volcanoes have a similar effect. I am not quite sure why, but I think that it might be the thought of the large object getting between me and above water. I am not quite sure about that, because I have always been comfortable around water. I will NOT swim in a pool that has any kind of a concrete island in the middle that is larger underwater than it is above water. It is not like I will freak out- it just gives me the creeps and sometimes makes me feel sick.
