    Relatively new on the market, made by divers for divers! But this pretty little camera works just as well in many other circumstances. Find all about it here: https://pevly.com/paralenz-dive-camera-review/

    Located in the Bay of Bengal, Andaman and Nicobar Islands is an archipelago consisting of about 600 islands out of which only around 36 islands are inhabited. The archipelago is divided into two groups of islands - the Andaman Islands and the Nicobar Islands. Of these, only 9 islands in the Andaman Islands group are open for tourists. In earlier times, the islands were referred to as Kalapani for their notorious penal settlement. Pristine beaches, gorgeous corals, fascinating marine life, adventurous water sports and the remain of Stone Age culture draw multitudes of tourists to these islands every year. These islands are covered with lush forests and endless varieties of exotic flora and fauna.

    Human-induced scourge plaguing all water bodies around the planet, this Nylon Beast will decompose for ages. Why are we so lame and unable to stop this behavior? It has to do with inner rage at inadequacies and dishonesty that seems to run within our so-called civilisation. But thats another, unending theme.
  • Country: Macedonia
    Underwater grasses reach for the surface to get closer to the Sun... the shallow water will also help with seed spreading, by dint of waves which tear off the parts of the stalks. In the meantime, it just looks beautiful...
  • Country: Macedonia
    When your sky is like a mirror, everything will be symmetrical... if the surface will allow.
  • Country: Macedonia
    Bubbles of gas emanating from decaying organic matter stick to the reedstalks and leaves, moss, or lichen-covered rocks, creating sparkling surfaces for Sunlight to reflect off.

    A snake coming to the surface, for air - and some photos... :)
  • Country: Macedonia
    The Waterworld is where the sky is changing within a second...
  • Country: Macedonia
    Aging and seasonal winds make the reedstalks bow and their leaves sink under the lake surface. Turn the photo around and a strange, alien forest appears.
  • Country: Macedonia
    I found this piece of crockery in the ever-shifting sands of the lake bottom. It appears to be some sort of jar cover, but it is hard to say how old,or what kind of vessel it was sealing. Until I discover more details, lets call it "baked clay smiley".
  • Country: Macedonia
    OK, it is automatically an ad when you see products consumed. It is something quite different when you see it consumed by a moron, someone who cant clearly understand the concept of clean water, recycling of materials, and has no urge to become better citizen and person. What riles me is that such beings also have the right to vote, let alone walk the streets like normal folks.
  • Country: Macedonia
    Rare are the chances to see a cormorant underwater, that is, when you dive. Ive only seen it twice. But sometimes you can see him underwater if youre lucky, and he is diving nearby. Like here.

    A joint endeavor of NASA, the European Space Agency, or ESA, and the Italian Space Agency, Cassini launched in 1997 along with ESAs Huygens probe. The spacecraft contributed to studies of Jupiter for six months in 2000 before reaching its destination, Saturn, in 2004 and starting a string of flybys of Saturns moons. That same year it released the Huygens probe on Saturns moon Titan to conduct a study of the moons atmosphere and surface composition. In its second extended mission, which went through 2017, Cassini made the first observations of a complete seasonal period for Saturn and its moons. ( https://www.jpl.nasa.gov/missions/cassini-huygens/ ) On September 15, 2017, Cassini was ordered to swerve from its orbit and burn up in Saturns atmosphere. But Id like to think that the Pefect Probe had managed to land safely, and in spite of all science, now lives well in its new World. It surely deserves it!
  • Country: Macedonia
    Is that how waterlife sees the World on the other side of the surface? Unless we are living the life in water, well never know.
  • Country: Macedonia
    A waterplant sheds such segments and lets them float to new destinations by wind and current, as its clever way of spreading.
  • Country: Macedonia
    Well I was actually brazenly obvious... The next second the snake was gone, for when they move, they MOVE! :)
  • Country: Macedonia
    The crab cleaning his den from sand and shingle. Then the next windy weather and resulting waves will push the bottom sediment back in, and hell have to do it all again. And so on... ob-la-di, ob-la-da... :)
  • Country: Macedonia
    The sky we know changes a lot - but the sky that underwater life knows changes even more! And - it also reflects whats underneath, as opposed to our sky! Can it be that underwater world is even more beautiful than ours on dry land?
  • Country: Macedonia
    Found this young freshwater shrimp zipping around me in the water, and have managed to halt it for a few seconds, so as to take this one photo.
  • Country: Macedonia
    We can all understand fishing; its one of the means of survival and should be regarded as a part of lifecycle both for fishes and humans. But when someone throws overboard or does not remove parts of damaged nets, it is an act of brainless cruelty. People forget or never think about the fact that jilted nets continue to entrap underwater life for as long as the existence of its last filament! Even sadder part of the story is that torturous death of any animal that gets caught is as slow as it is useless. So whats the saddest aspect? Maybe its the mental state of people which cause it. Please, always remove all nets and net parts from water, wherever you notice such things! Life will be grateful.
  • Country: Macedonia
    The third quarter of the year is already visible around, also underwater.
  • Country: Macedonia
    Distorted through the wavy surface, the portrait looks really special. We can only imagine how the fish see things above.
  • Country: Macedonia
    Up there, the weather is changing... and down here, it can be felt too.
  • Country: Macedonia
    This is how I have customized my underwater camera: 1 Lens Cap (on wet lens adapter) 2 Lens Cap safety line (detachable at fingerplate) 3 Fingerplate (above middle and fourth finger, secures camera grip) 4 Adjusts strap length (camera to fingerplate) between fingers 5 Adjusts wrist strap loop length 6 Wrist strap (with provided safety breaking point) 7 Spirit bubble level (glued to camera) All modifications were made to enable me the one-handed use of the camera, as the fingerplate lets me hold the camera securely even with open palm, until I spread the fingers; that releases the fingerplate. In the meantime I can operate all the camera commands using just the thumb of the camera-holding hand. The spirit bubble level is superglued within the concave line in the camera case, and it lets me quickly correct the camera horizontality from all positions, without checking the monitor. The wrist strap ends are connected above the wrist with small metal clip that will rip apart when certain force is applied, which helps one to free oneself if the camera gets entangled during free dive. Of course, everyone is free to copy any one or all solutions shown here!
  • Country: Macedonia
    Attracted to my bright red snorkel, the snakes will regularly approach to check it out. Fun!

    A lake sponge in the shade of an uderwater rock crack, lives its collective life with dateshells (which also seek company).
  • Country: Macedonia
    I guess some crabs could actually find me boring. Me and my boring camera...
  • Country: Macedonia
    I thought this butterfly was dead, and then I noticed it was moving. I tried to save him out of the water, just to realise it wanted to go right back. Actually, I was witnessing the laying of eggs on underwater plants, as this insect was creating a future generation. We live to learn...
  • Country: Macedonia
    A butterfly laying eggs on an underwater reedstick. Very interesting to see such way of procreation!
  • Country: Macedonia
    One among the ways to gather candd underwater photos is to leave one camera in this fashion (set on Timelapse Photo mode), while snorkeling around with another. Expect various beings visiting the alien "plant" sticking from the lake bottom... while you hunt withanother camera in hand! Fun! Find out more here: https://pevly.com/sjcam-sj6-legend-air-review/

    Before trustng the newly acquired camera, one should first test its resistence to water pressure, of course within the recommendations given by its manufacturer. So here is such a test for the new "USB casing" with touch-enabled hatch...
  • Country: Macedonia
    Having been surprised on the surface, the snake seeks the bottom cover by the most direct line, creating an interesting view.
  • Country: Macedonia
    Beautiful view from under the Lake Ohrid surface.
  • Country: Macedonia
    Small snake I met underwater...

    ... there was an Underwater Photography Contest that asked for "creative" photos. This chandelier was at hand and so it got the chance to dwell 20 meters under the sea - for a while!
  • Country: Macedonia
    Only an empty, fragile dry shell remained hooked to the concrete, while its former inhabitant broke out, exiting through the crack in the back. The fugitive is now a beautiful dragonfly, having changed its underwater world for the dry land. It will spend the rest of its life flying, eating, and reproducing under the Sunlight. A Sudden Bird, or finally Fall Will be the Force that ends it all...

    ... where no Man... er... Toy has gone before. A bit of manipulation fun with an underwater photo!
  • Country: Macedonia
    Kids are merciless. Once the heel strap snaps they just let the fin sink, and since one is no good theyll jilt another one too. It cost them nothing, and the new pair will cost them the same: parents are like that. Instead of cutting out the new strap out of an old inner bike tube, theyll simply buy a new pair of fins for their spoiled brat. In a way, our children only reflect us and our throw-away-and-forget mindset. Makes me hesitate to forecast anything about future generations...
  • Country: Croatia
    Diving is really an addictive fun, although preparations can largely exceed the time spent underwater. Among other things, one has to spend hours loading air into the tanks. The din created by the compressor is on the opposite side of the silent world.
  • Country: Croatia
    Cousin to coral, this colonial animal thrives in depths where currents bring mcro-organisms to its myriads of polyps. Made with Nikonos III / 35m UW Nikkor /Sunpak Marine strobe and Fujichrome Sensia, deep in the Adriatic sea.
  • Country: Croatia
    Electric ray (Torpedo marmorata) in the shade of Adriatic depths. The fish has just arrived and landed on a nearby outcrop, raising clouds of sediment. Took some frames with Nikonos III, carefully keeping my distance. The fish can discharge pretty powerful electric shocks, and deep down its the last thing youd wish to experience! Electric fishes use their high voltage charge to hunt by stunning their prey. While the science generally understands their electric battery / capacity mechanism, were still know nothing about "the switch" which enables them to discharge at will.
  • Country: Croatia
    Common sole (Solea vulgaris) in the sandy shallows of the Adriatic, photographed by my diving buddy. in the cristal clear sea of Croatian Maritime Natl Park Kornati. The place cant really be described. It simply has to be experienced the way we did some 30 years ago.
  • Egg
    Country: Croatia
    Egg case (Chondrichthyes) of a catshark, fixed to a Red Finger Gorgonian (Diodogorgia nodulifera). Found decades ago deep under the Adriatic surface. Photographed with Nikonos III + 35mm UW Nikkor and Sunpak Marine strobe on Fujichrome Sensia.

    Or Brown comber, photographed with Nikonos III and macro tubes on Fujichorme Sensia. One small, very inquisitive beaut!
  • Country: Macedonia
    Underwater photo inserted in an over-the-surface lake photo during a spell of wind. Both photos were taken one right after another in the same location, and later combined. Fun!

    Crabs dig their shelters under bottom rocks, and it leaves a telltale "garden" of material that they carry out and distribute in such fan form.

    I took this snake off the reedstalk for some quick portraits, then let it go. He wasnt alarmed in the slightest, and simply swam to another reed about one meter away. Nice models, my snakes!
  • Country: Macedonia
    One more photo of one of my underwater friends!
  • Country: Macedonia
    The way boats connect with Terra firma. Easy to build if you create more weights and connect them together to work as one. One simple way is to make parts interlock. Designing a cast for making such parts is open to your creativity!
  • Country: Macedonia
    Fish are gathering intensively in this spot trying to reach something that appears to be very edible. I was not able to find anything there, but theyd know better, since they came back the moment I moved away from the place...
  • Country: Macedonia
    Small and nifty, this camera can reach places many others cant. If you like Outdoors, regardless of the climate, perhaps you should look it up - or any among the vast range of other models / manufacturers. Still, considering specs vs. price, this choice was relatively painless. I use it mainly underwater, so I added this DIY wrist bracelet.
  • Country: Macedonia
    - "Hi, good neighbor... Trimming again?" - "Hi... yes, it keeps growing like its paid for it..."
  • Country: Macedonia
    Snake changing course after seeing me. Maybe I pulled his tail last time we met... ;)
  • Country: Macedonia
    One thing lost underwater and later recovered. This anchor will hopefully go on serving for many years...
  • Country: Macedonia
    Two watersnakes, distinctively different in coloration, but equally friendly and inquisitive.
  • Country: Macedonia
    Small but rich in extravagant texture!
  • Country: Macedonia
    Reed leaves underwater - a scene which is as simple as always different.
  • Country: Macedonia
    The way we imagine the fish see their sky. Still, no-one but the fish know how they see their world.
  • Country: Macedonia
    Emanating from the underwater plants, it is best used for closeup photo adornment. :)

    Algae reflecting in the lake Ohrid surface.
  • Country: Macedonia
    Millions of young fish in the lake this year... Lets hope they all manage to grow up!
  • Country: Macedonia
    Short for crab procreation. Now you know whats going on in that tangle of armored legs and pincers.
  • Country: Macedonia
    The reed leaf at its best, when the wind makes it bow under the surface to collect biogas emanating from the lake bottom.
  • Country: Macedonia
    Slowly and invisibly drifting and decomposing in the lake current, this leaf will be the source of some new life, we know not which. But one truth is inevitable: nothing will be left unused.
  • Country: Macedonia
    Its nice to be able to swim again and visit my underwater friends after my spell of post-op recovery. So I let this fella inspect my palm...
  • Country: Macedonia
    Fish enjoying the shade under the willow tree in lake shallows. Interesting color of the sunlit background water, isnt it
  • Country: Macedonia
    Swan diving for food in the lake bottom... a composition from images taken on both sides of the surface.
  • Country: Macedonia
    Natrix tessellata, in the Lake shallows. A real close-up, since the camera was a wide-angle Sjcam M10+ set to photo mode.
  • Eel
    Country: Macedonia
    In a nearby fish pond people raise mainly trout, but one can see an occasional eel too. Fortunately it gave me just enough time to switch on the underwater camera, dunk my hand,and click this one shot. (SJCAM M10 in u/w casing)
  • Country: Macedonia
    Nice fish hideaway which is difficult to find, but beautiful to photograph. It even has a ceiling light of its own! There are always some fishes in there, so Im not telling where it is! :)
  • Country: Slovenia
    An incredibly beautiful, clean carstic river in Slovenia, excellent for water sports and photography, including underwater. Well worth visiting!
  • Country: Macedonia
    Made by small quantity of Fluorescein tracer dye spreading in lake water from concentrate-loaded syringe. Then the "face" was created and tonal range reduced, so as to darken all else. Fluorescein (C20 H12 O5)dye is used in hydrology, medicine, oil industry and various other applications to trace the ways of the water. It is bio- and ecologically harmless.
  • Country: Croatia
    The remnants of an old fishing boat spending its last in the Adriatic depth. So far only some ribs and hull plating resist decay, already soft and soggy. Soon there will only be a memory and photos.
  • Country: Croatia
    A scorpionfish hiding behind its camo pattern, making him very hard to spot in the low light of his surroundings. But flash brings out the shape and colors making him both visible and beautiful. Adriatic, Croatia.
  • Country: Croatia
    The best mechanical underwater amphibious camera ever - the abilities and quality of such devices are still sorely missed in diving fraternity. My diving buddy is exposing the last frames of the roll, so we can develop it right there in the camp. And a seastar turning over is always an interesting sight.

    There is something self-destructive in people, usually expressing itself when they think no-one is looking. And while PET bottles might appear harmless to the ambient, still the very act of carelessly throwing it in the lake reveals this basic lack of caring. Thrown away is not exactly hidden forever - documents will come to the surface sooner or later!
  • Air
    Country: Macedonia
    A tangle of reed leaves near the lake surface, creating various shades and hues. The air bubbles keep the whole sunshade floating, and adds to the beauty of the simple scene.
  • Country: Macedonia
    Usually they would separate to let me pass, but it is more fun if I stop swimming. Then the whole swarm starts swimming around me and I can concentrate on photography.
