The machine-room of the Kalais. This beautyful wreck laying in only 30 meters depth will disappear because it is inside the ampliation area of the exterior mole of the harbour at Las Palmas, Gran Canaria. This picture was taken may 2004.

Red sea-horse. This is one of the most beautiful I've ever seen. This animal was living a few years at the same place, and we visited it almost every time we went there. The photo has the original frame, and has no photoshop adjusts.

Jelly by night. This was a very lucky moment: I had attached the fisheye for that nightdive, a very unusual combination. Just entering the water we found this beautyful jellyfish. I think it will be very difficult to get such an opportunity again.

This is another of the winning portfolio in Eilat, Israel. Yes, a little bit of luck, but I think that this picture is much more than luck.

This is a very friendly big grouper called Felix by the local divers from Lanzarote. I've added a special effect with a long shutter time. Hope you enjoy it. More on my web artefotosub.com

Octopus eye. This guy was walking around the reef trying to find something to eat. It took me much time to get him enough confident to stay at only 2 or 3 inches away from my camera, but the result was worth it.
