While I tried to capture a shot of these juvenile squids near to the diving platform, a curious guest is watching me and wonders what the heck I am doing there ;-) The lights on top are reflections of my strobe lights on water surface.

Patrol Boat 119 - I took this shot 13 minutes after this new shipwreck touched oceans ground. Lots of dirt & dust clouds....the ship's stern was totally covered by a sand cloud that time. Ambient light shot, converted to B/W.

This is the turkish coastguard patrol boat "B119", just 1 minute after touchdown on its final resting place. It's the very first photo ever of this brand-new shipwreck. Still bubbles and smoke are escaping. Bad visibility, very rough circumstances.
