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.
Olympus E330, 14-54mm, single Ikelite DS125 strobe.

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.

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.

I am scared of me !!!!!!!!!!!!
I think that this Tiger Moray has a very amusing expression. Maybe it comes from closing his mouth with that set of teeth.

Tenerife under and above the surface.
A try with a over/under shot on snorkel. Photo is taken at Punta Teno, the very North Western point of the Island. The coastline is the beautiful cliffs of Los Gigantes. It is really worth a visit.

Close to the dome !
Another friendly green turtle on the El Puertito divesite on Tenerife. It came very close, so the strobe didn't lighten up the eyes. But I kind of like it anyway.
