After Tramontana ( strong wind from north ) to much reflections to use the strobe. But natural light makes the jelly ( pelagia noctiluca ) not ugly. :)

"SAD MOMENTS"
Today I've seen a very long fishing net fixed on the bottom. Representative of so many animals in the net I show you this poor scorpion fish. On this spot is fishing absolutely forbidden. Sorry, even those images must be documented.

Not only that this is a good shot with superb exposure, it also wakes us all up and reminds us what we are diving and shooting for. A very clear message in your photo, Roland....and this makes it a well deserved winner-shot :-)

Slipper lobster in the wreck of the Ocean Diver. Difficult to find the right category for this pic. Maybe better to put it in "wide angle - wrecks"? smile

"SAD MOMENT"
Just in front where I live, this whale was driven ashore today. Pumped up by the gases in the body is now waiting for his last ride. Tomorrow morning they bring him to open water, and with a blasting he will end as fish food.
