  • Country: Macedonia
    Same scene as the former one, just differently port processed (lifted shadows, and a tad different framing).
  • Country: Macedonia
    The pier is in front of the fish restaurant (one image back), photographed with a Paralenz DiveCamera.
  • Country: Macedonia
    What more to say?
  • Country: Macedonia
    Sometimes I find the fishing net remnants underwater, and make a point of taking them out of the water and dispose of them properly. The nets will go on killing for as long as these do not decay - and that can take ages! Please do the same!
  • Country: Macedonia
    Underwater view of reed leaves floating on the lake surface.
  • Country: Macedonia
    One curious fish posing for my camera...
  • Country: Macedonia
    ... or... the simple beauty of a fish!
  • Country: Croatia
    This type of anchor is more or less universal, but not quite designed for sandy bottoms. However, we've pushed it in deeper to catch on the rock and it held well for the duration of that dive...
  • Country: Croatia
    ...from under the small isle of Borovnik (Adriatic,Croatia), my diving buddy is posing behind a large red Gorgonia. This is a complicated version of the original (slidefilm). The frame was scanned decades ago to make an A3 sized paper print, He has recently photographed the print (which is behind a sheet of glass, to complicate things even more), and it took some work to crop out a part without too much reflections... so this is a photo of picture image of a slide photo's reproduction on the wall. Naturally, in the photo quality sense the result is pretty disastrous, but curiously, the memories of the moment are still as fresh as ever. And I'd like you to dwell on the memories only! :) Summer ~1980, Adriatic, Kornati NP, Borovnik Is., -30m, Nikonos III (35mm UW Nikkor), Fujichrome Sensia 100ASA, Sunpak Marine 32 strobe...
  • Country: Macedonia
    In this light, the trending color is green. Different light angle, different color. :)
  • Country: Macedonia
    An inquistive watersnake inspecting the camera that I am brazenly pushing into his face... :)
  • Country: Macedonia
    Our senses are everything, but in water it is also good to have sensors of other kind... at least to be able to analyse the dive.
  • Country: Macedonia
    A freshwater shrimp (crawdad) swimming freely away after our first contact...
  • Country: Macedonia
    An underwater stroll with my friendly crawdad :)
  • Country: Macedonia
    The crawdad grabs my finger... no real force to do any damage... but contact is contact, and we've subsequently spent nice ten minutes together! More in other photos... :)
  • Country: Macedonia
    The snake has caught a fish and tries to swallow it. Tail-first, it will not be easy.
  • Country: Macedonia
    Watersnake tries to swallow the prey. Unfortunately, the fish is the wrong way 'round...
  • Country: Macedonia
    Yet another story about irresponsible people throwing anything anywhere...
  • Country: Macedonia
    The snake has paused in his swimming to see who's been following him, and so gave me a chance for a nice profile photo.
  • Country: Macedonia
    A quick check before swimming home, returning from another photographing dive, which is my favorite summer activity.
  • Country: Macedonia
    Blooming algae sometimes form funny shapes...
  • Country: Macedonia
    Pretty, isn't he? Some would say, this face only a mother could love... but they'd be wrong. :)
  • Country: Macedonia
    Curious crawdad joining me for a dive!
  • Country: Macedonia
    This freshwater shrimp holding fast to my finger... we are going diving! :)

    Jiuzhaigou National Park in Sichuan province
  • Country: China
    Juizhagou national park is situated in the mountains of Sichuan province.There are a lot of waterfalls and about a hundred of lakes with water of different colour.
  • Country: Macedonia
    After an hour or so in the beautiful, cool and silent lake depths, must go up and out. Diver's visits to the underwater world are always too short, but there's the hope of "next time" that keeps us addicted... :)
  • Country: Macedonia
    Smaller than the seawater sponge, the lake specimen are serving the same purpose - that of filtering waters. Lake sponges are found usually in cracks and crevices, well shielded from excessive wave action, but exposed to gentle water currents.
  • Country: Macedonia
    Every time I go in the water I find something that does not belong there. This is the remnant of a fishing net, deadly to crustaceans and fish - until it decomposes. With plastic materials, this could take ages! Please remove all such things from water, wherever you find them! Thanks!
  • Country: Macedonia
    No. Just the diver sign for OK. And diving in Lake Ohrid is OK - and more!
  • Country: Macedonia
    A tad of photo-editing play with an underwater rock, created for your amusement...
  • Country: Macedonia
    The "floating phase" in the blooming algae life. Soon it will disperse into small fractals which the wind and currents will carry to new places. Life goes on.
  • Country: Macedonia
    I don't like selfies, but this one makes me realise how funny I must appear to all the fish and others... :)
  • Country: Macedonia
    My breathing air slowly traveling upwards, while I chose to stay down for an hour more. It's cool, silent and peaceful...
  • Country: Macedonia
    By mistake I chose Watercolor Effect instead of Underwater Mode... and came up with tens of photos like this one! That's when I do not use my glasses... but I saved this one as a good bad example! :)
  • Country: Macedonia
    An eerie scene from the Lake Ohrid bottom. It's a season when the algae are blooming and the underwater visibility is rather restricted.
  • Up!
    Country: Macedonia
    This freshwater plant browing from the lake botttom can reach up to five meters in length, striving to reach the surface.
  • Country: Macedonia
    My old diving partner, now replaced with a dive computer... still running perfect time.
  • Country: England
    Destination: London
    A little swim with the creatures of life??
  • Country: Egypt
    You burry me deep down below ice and I melt my way up through it again
  • Country: Macedonia
    The lifecycle of reed begins from its underwater rhizome roots and ends by the waves breaking off the old stalks, depositing them on the shore to decompose, and thus turn into a nourishment for the roots. Thus the cycle is closed - and Nature-perfect.

  • Country: Macedonia
    Some years ago my wife was strolling along the lake shore and noticed a sudden streaming which disturbed an otherwise calm surface. I went to that spot later on, and found this; imprinted on the lake bottom. The depth was ~3 meters. The tracks are 60 centimeters apart and 6-7 meters long, connecting in a perfect half-circle at one end. It does not seem to be caused by any natural means I can think of. My guess is, it was left by an "Unidentified underwater Object", though Im open to suggestions... So, what do you think?
  • Country: Macedonia
    Surface interaction of plants, leaves, reedstalks and light. The line between blue and green zone depicts the border between transparence and reflection dependent upon the camera angle and media (air, water) density difference.
  • Country: Macedonia
    Pretty fish, the barbels, and the young ones are quite inquisitive and unafraid of the camera presence.
  • Country: Macedonia
    Water plants floating on the lake surface. The stalks exposed to sunlight will turn red, those remaining in the shadow will stay green.
  • Country: Macedonia
    Submerged reed leaves covered in tiny gas bubbles can shine like this under certain angles relative to the Sun.
  • Country: Macedonia
    An underwater view of sunshine - and the lack of it.
  • Country: Macedonia
    Several years ago I found this sunken tree, and nowadays it is already a home for numerous shells. Life goes on.
  • Country: Macedonia
    A large underwater rock populated by numerous shells, and from above it looks quite like a settlement. Probably because in a way, it actually is...
  • Country: Macedonia
    The water plants develop roots already while floating, so as to be ready when the currents and winds bring them to their final location...
  • Country: Macedonia
    Typical view of the Lake Ohrid bottom, looking upwards. In many aspects it is like a sea - only, you dont have to wash your diving gear afterwards!
  • Country: Macedonia
    Freshly metamorphed dragonflies, just out of their underwater "suits where theyve spent maybe four years. Now theyre drying in the sunlight, preparing for the second, short part of their life, which is extremely different from what they did underwater.
  • Country: Macedonia
    ... for the refreshing feeling you gave me, ... for the attractively designed container, ... for the joy of low priced, sweet taste, and for the chance to show what Ecology, Save The Planet, and Recycle really means to the brainless majority when they think no-one is looking.
  • Country: Macedonia
    The snake attaching itself to the reed, to rest for a while... By the way, this is my 2018th photo - taken in 2018, and posted in 2018, too!
  • Country: Macedonia
    The fishview of life-giving Sun - or how we presume the underwater beings perceive it.
  • Country: Macedonia
    A piece of torn fishermens net left in water, which continues to trap, snag, and kill fish and crustaceans. This one was properly taken out of water and disposed of. Please do the same (be careful!).
  • Country: Macedonia
    ... but only in comparison to the bottom-living shells! These fixed on the reedstalk may have a temporarily better view, but come winter, all the reed stumps will be broken off by deep-acting waves. So, everything is relative... same as in human society.
  • Country: Macedonia
    Various homemade concrete blocks made as a bottom weights meant for attaching the boat mooring buoy to it during summer months.
  • Country: Macedonia
    Decided on this one for my 2000th photo on CE. I hope you find it nice enough for the occasion!
  • Country: Macedonia
    Everything in the Nature has a way to support each other.
  • Country: Macedonia
    The wind makes the reed bend to the water and below, showing respect for uncontrollable force. Good thinking.
  • Country: Macedonia
    I pulled this out of the lake bottom sand, and it looks like a number of things... Most of it all like the remnants of an old artillery casing, but cant be sure. It is too thoroughly rusted. Anyway, let it remain a mystery.
  • Country: Macedonia
    Leaves that fall in the Fall
  • Country: Macedonia
    Autumn leaves the leaves that fall on the botom... :)))
  • Country: Macedonia
    Someboody has walked along here, probably during the night... Still havent discovered who... :)
  • Country: Macedonia
    The uniform reedstalk shapes disturbed by the snakes wavy form.
  • Country: Macedonia
    Our Lisa often finds small beings in the grass or even underwater, and shell stand there for 20 minutes communicating in some way which were quite incapable of understanding.
  • Country: Macedonia
    The shrimp is autochtonous to our lake, and is a welcome sign of clean waters, because any pollution is able to decimate the sort.
  • Country: Macedonia
    Underwater view on Lake Ohrid botanics
  • Country: Macedonia
    One of my friendly snakes rests between two hunting dives. Wound firmly around the reedstalk, it can even sleep for a while. Or thats how they appear sometimes...
  • Country: Macedonia
    The feeling of falling sometimes comes with downward views in images (and life). Here, fortunately there is water to help negate the gravity. In the lake reed forest.
  • Country: Macedonia
    Another example of practical human thinking. Someone was swimming along and one goggle cup was filling with water, being sprung along the rim. Or maybe someone stepped on the goggles in the boat, cracked one lens and declared them unfit for use. So whats to do? The easiest way is to drop de dam thang in the water and forget it. Cheap enough to replace. And then someone snorkels along and the goggles finally get disposed of properly. Now... the things no-one ever finds, the depths no-one will ever visit, the garbage thats never recovered... Human nature versus natural Nature. How much can it stand? Ere long, well find out.
  • Country: Macedonia
    Big mushroom-shaped rock offers plenty of shade, protects from annoying waves, and grants more ways to escape from danger. It also saves one the effort of digging out sand from under the bottom stone. The shells growing all over the place ensure sufficient food. So, Hernando has found himself a nearly perfect hideaway. Feeling safe, he did not run from the approaching camera. Theres an old song titled "Hernandos Hideaway". Listen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XC05YwDUmVg
  • Country: Macedonia
    In this phase the blooming algae develop many tiny gas bubbles and the clump rises to the surface. Wind, currents and waves will scatter it far and wide, and then it will sink and rot, giving chance to the seed to gain a hold. For some reason, when these green beings start to darken and sink, eels will often be found under the blackened layers. Nature is mysterious... but only to us humans!

    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/

  • Country: India
    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.
