Diver inside Ressel
Red eyed damselflies. A very rare moment, the damselflies are putting their eggs under water. Normally only the female is doing it, but this time also the male was under water. The silver color is due to air that is trapped on the body of the damsels
Pike meets human. Taken in the Netherlands.
Slate Mine Nuttlar
Schiefergrube Christine, an old slate mine in Germany. Always clear water.
Tench, a very shy fish.

Goby in 'het Grevelingenmeer' in the Netherlands. This is the largest salt water lake in the Netherlands.
shortlistedShortlisted!
The red color not only disappears with the depth, it also disappears horizontal if you have a lot of viz in the water. This makes that caves looks really bleu.
Icediving on the Gotthardpass. Over 2100m height.
Diver in Messinghausen
This small cave with clear water has some restrictions where you have to pass. This is 1 of them. You see the strength of water on the rocks.
The slate mine 'Christine' has always crystal clear water. This time we went to the 'Abbauten', the 'rooms' higher in the mine that don't have rails for a minetrain.
shortlistedShortlisted!
Diver in the Slate Mine in Nuttlar / Germany
In caves is never natural light, so the photographer has to bring all the light for the pictures. The usage of extra slave strobes brings more depth in the picture.
With a permit you can dive this cave in Chatillon-sur-Seine. It is a nice cave with always crystal clear water. But sometimes a lot of current.
shortlistedShortlisted!
Picture taken in de Köbanya mine in Budapest. This 'mine' is not a real mine, but was a wine cellar. Now parts are flooded and you can dive.
Small snail in afresh water lake. Who says fresh water is boring?
shortlistedShortlisted!
going down the first pit (Buèges spring, Occitany, France)
This picture is taken in the 'Möllerbunker' in Germany, it is an old steelbunker. So it is not mine, no wreck, but it still is old iron and dark and narrow.
Old slate mine in Willingen, Germany. This is the room where the explosives were stored.
The eye of a big pike. Taken in a freshwaterlake in the Netherlands.
Fish in a freshwaterlake in the sun.
Old Slate mine 'Nuttlar' in Germany. Diving in a museum.
shortlistedShortlisted!
A red eared turtle. Officially not living in my country, but when people free their pets, they can live here. They don't get progeny here. This turtle is only seen about twice a year, it is really shy.
This picture is taken in the Grevelingen in the Netherlands. No clear blue waters, but always a little bit murky green water. And also colorful.
shortlistedShortlisted!
