Bubble collision !!
The turtle actually liked bubbles and ate them. Maybe then it didn't have to go up for air.

Peek-a-boo.
Seahorse hiding on the divesite, El Puertito, Tenerife. There was a yellow one rather close. I'll put that on another day. A little challenging to shoot with the 14-54 mm, but I think it went ok.

Green turtle on the descend.
My aim was to catch the turtle after a breath of air. I really like the patterns on this animal.

Nudibranch in Tenerife.
I like the colours of this one and the flash also shows the colours on the otherwise barren rock. Unfortunately I hadn't the macro lens on, so the image is not pinsharp. Hope that you like it anyway.

Palm Mar cave.
Inside the entrance of Palm Mar cave. A beautiful divesite with lots of stuff to entertain you,including the fierce looking tiger moray. The cross is a grim reminder of the unfortunate dives having lost their lives exploring the Cave.

Mr Wrinkle,
He came close, so even with the 14 mm, he quite fill out the frame. El Puertito, Tenerife.

This is not a night dive !
I wanted to make the beautiful patterns and colours stand out, so I chose to make the background black.

Like crystal (tiger moray).
The impressive set of teeth reminds me of crystal.
The lightning is on purpose by lightning close-up very much from one side. Creating a coming out of shadow effect.
