This picture is taken in an old mine that was already in use around 1900. It has been closed before world war 1. The mine is clear on the way in, but has zero viz on the way out. Taking pictures is hard, every wrong movement gives a siltout.
European eels (Anguilla anguilla), critically endangered (according to the most recent IUCN assessment)

The image was obtained by placing in situ a plexiglass, handled by an assistant and lighted by a strobe, behind the fish. All was done carefully and lasted a few seconds, to not disturb the animal (Scorpaena notata, Cap Martin, Roquebrune, France),

Cave with crystal clear water in France. You need a permit to dive there.
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.
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.
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!
going down the first pit (Buèges spring, Occitany, France)
This picture is taken in the Marchepied cave in France. The entrance is narrow and sidemount only.
