Speleothem with diver in the background in the cenote Dos Palmas in Mexico. The caves in Mexico are the best ones in the world.
Hells Bells, the only place in the world where these bells can be found. A unique cenote. These formations grow under water, so are not formed in a dry period. They still grow. The complete mechanism is not understood, but anaeroob bacteria help.
The toad migration in the Netherlands. This phenomena only lasts a few days. The toads are looking for a place to drop their eggs.
The mysterious 'Hells Bells' in cenote Hells Bells/Zapote Mexico with the mystic sulfur layer. These bells are only found there, nowhere else in the world.
Cenote Nohoch in Mexico. De water is always clear. A very nice cave to dive in.

A white Cyprinus carpio (common carp) in a lake at Ekeren. (f/22, 1/160, ISO-3200, 50mm). - Erik
Fresh water nudibranch in the Netherlands. Not as colorfull as in salt water in the tropics, but even a very beautifull creature.
Ponte dei Salti
Eye of a brown frog that tries to stay under water during the wintercold. You can see the third eyelid of the eye.
Larvea of a brown frog. the small 'fishes' have really nice mouths, they are really cute.
Larvae of a dragonfly. Almost nobody knows that dragonflies live most of their lives under water. People only know them as the animals with wings. But they live a few years under water before their last stadium in their lives.
In 1 lake I dive quite a lot in winter, there are frogs found under water. I really like that. The frogs are found at 16-20m depth. And the special thing is that you can see that the waterpressure makes the frogs flat. But they are still alive.
A picture took from garbage. I have a longer lasting project to take pictures of garbage I find under water. This time it was a Barbie doll, the perfect woman for kids. But now dropped, headless and green of algea. A bigger contrast almost impossible
Landscape with seastar taken in the Grevelingen lake in the Netherlands.
This divesite is not a lake, but a tank filled with water. It is called the 'Gasometer'. In this tank there are several objects placed to explore. Maximum depth 14m, diameter 45m.
Eistauchen im Weissensee/Österreich. Dieser See bildet in den kalten Monaten die größte Natureisfläche Europas, und zieht daher unterschiedlichste Sportler an
Diver in the Fontaine del Truffe in France. One of my favorite caves in this region.

Curious common carp (Cyprinus carpio) in La Gombe, an old open quarry. (f/3.5, 1/160, ISO-2500, 17mm, no strobe). - Erik
Nature is harsh. This brown frog did not survive the winterperiod. It is covered with mold. In this lake brown frogs can be found at 16-20m depth where they try to survive the winter under water.
Riverdiving in Switzerland. River Verzasca.
Tunnel in the Kobanya mine. Officially it is not a mine, but a wine cellar. Some parts are flooded and you can dive in now.
Marble mine in Belgium.
