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
Small cave at the Fury Shoals in Egypt.
Curious turtle on Bonaire.
Cavern in the South of Egypt.
Cavern at the Fury Shoals in Egypte. Playing with light. Maybe this picture is not only 'divers', but also 'marine life' as there is fish in this cavern.
Pike meets human. Taken in the Netherlands.
A nice reef on the Fury Shoals in Egypt.
Fluorescence under water. Made with a blue strobe and a yellow excitation filter.
Lot's of corals and fish in the Red sea near Marsa Alam.
Small wreck in the Fury Shoals in the south of Egypt.
Lots of fish on a reef on the Fury Shoals in Egypt.

Wreck on the Fury Shoals in the South of Egypt.
Taken on Sardinia. Almost invisable with the normal eye.

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.
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!
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!
Some sponges and corals on Bonaire.
