Great crop, great framing and composition. The action moving into frame from a disappearing point. A unique shot proving swimming pools can also provide subjects
Head to Head with this magnificiant and very big "Brochet (Pike Fish)" in a small lake in Switzerland... Diving lakes is soooooo Beautiful :O)
A lake Snail called "Limnée" - it is about 2 cm big. You can find them down to 30m. They are very shy, specially when you put light on them. But they are so beautiful...
