From Tenerife, one of a sequence of photos showing a Lizardfish catching and swallowing an Ornate Wrasse alive. The photos had to be taken in between bouts of thrashing by the Lizardfish. The whole sequence can be seen on my Flickr site.

The machine-room of the Kalais. This beautyful wreck laying in only 30 meters depth will disappear because it is inside the ampliation area of the exterior mole of the harbour at Las Palmas, Gran Canaria. This picture was taken may 2004.

Red sea-horse. This is one of the most beautiful I've ever seen. This animal was living a few years at the same place, and we visited it almost every time we went there. The photo has the original frame, and has no photoshop adjusts.
