Wreck in the Red sea near the Fury Shoals.
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.
Diver in the Fontaine del Truffe in France. One of my favorite caves in this region.
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.
Riverdiving in the Verzasca river in Switzerland.
Marble mine in Denee in Belgium.
shortlistedShortlisted!
Old marble mine in Belgium. Only accessible with a permit. Cristal clear water. To reach the entrance it is a horrible climb.
A pike in a lake in the Netherlands. In summer we can spot a lot of pikes. I still like that fish.
Small crab in the Netherlands. In winter you don't see a lot, but crabs are always there.
Seasquirts (Ascidiacea) in the 'Veerse Meer' in the Netherlands. Not the most impressive animals, but sometimes they are nice to take pictures of.
Old mine in Belgium. Hard to get in, but then you have a nice dive.
An eel in a lake in Germany.
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.
My favorite type of photographing under water is wide angle with model(s). This time we found a ball under water and that ball was not floating and not really heavy. Exactly fitting for some fun under water. It ended in trying to play volleyball.
The famous bridge, ponte dei Salti above the Verzasca river in Lavertezzo in Switzerland. Sadly we had not the viz as it could be and a lot of current.
shortlistedShortlisted!
You do a wreckdive to the U455 (92-118m depth), and then at 101m, you see this. So a mola mola on a wreckdive, not bad in my eyes.
Fish in the red sea.
Part of a sponge in Sardinia Italy
A small nudibranch, called 'groene wierslak', grean sea snail in Zeeland, Netherlands.
Fishportret of a dab fish taken in the Netherlands in the biggest saltwaterlake of West-Europe, 'de Grevelingen', or 'Grevelingenmeer'.
Fish on the Milford Haven wreck in Italy. This very big wreck is suitable for all kind of divers, depths from 34m till 79m.
The U455 wreck in Italy. This wreck lies in a depth between 92m and 118m. A very big seastar has found a home on it.
This turtle is resting on a piece of fabric. Taken on Curacao.
A nice pike in the Netherlands.
