While I tried to capture a shot of these juvenile squids near to the diving platform, a curious guest is watching me and wonders what the heck I am doing there ;-) The lights on top are reflections of my strobe lights on water surface.

Patrol Boat 119 - I took this shot 13 minutes after this new shipwreck touched oceans ground. Lots of dirt & dust clouds....the ship's stern was totally covered by a sand cloud that time. Ambient light shot, converted to B/W.

This is a Skeleton Shrimp (Caprella) in its natural environment. They are very, very tiny little aliens, only about 3mm in length. This one was found at a depth of approx. 8m on a mooring line in Malta. I used a self-made darkfield flash.
