After Tramontana ( strong wind from north ) to much reflections to use the strobe. But natural light makes the jelly ( pelagia noctiluca ) not ugly. smile
Runner Up - worthy of note but not a medal winner - an equal 4th place if you like! Runner Up 2011

Looks a little bit like Walt Disney's "Pete's Dragon". But it's just a small Flabellina ( Flabellina affinis ) trying to do the first lesson freeclimbing. smile

the wreck of the "Santa" not far from the coast from the island Menorca. Lot of current and 28 min. decompression stop ( depth 47m ). Anyway... a very nice dive.

Jellyfish Lake? No, just Mediterranean Sea after Tramontana ( strong wind from the north ). There sometimes a lot of pelagic life very close to the coast.
