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.

Horozbina. A 5 cm small buddy, who is usually extremly "nervous" and therefore difficult to shoot. If you are looking close enough, there are even in the mediterranean nice motives to find ;-)

It was a great underwater photo session, when I worked with my turkish girlfriend Seda on freediving wide angle photos. While I was scubadiving, she was freediving. On later afternoon she managed to "bend" herself around the sun....a amazing moment

"Dutchess of York", a shipwreck near Kalkan in Turkey. Since a lot got broken there, I decided to shoot just a small part and some nice blue with a diver in a distance. Depht was 47 meter.
