The photo shows a diver's journey to the wreck of the Elviscot, which lies at the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea near the Italian island of Elba. The good light in this photo is due to the fact that the wreck lies at a shallow depth and the sun's rays penetrate to it.
AUTHOR: Petr Polách (Czech Republic)
I come from the Czech Republic. I have been photographing for a long time and after I started scuba diving in 2003, I took this hobby to the world under the water as well. I have visited different parts of the world, from warm, southern oceans and seas, through geographically moderate places to northern areas with very cold water. In recent years I have been focusing on photography in flooded cave systems in the Yucatan. This Mexican peninsula has the largest flooded cave systems in the world. The landscape of flooded caves is characterized by the unusual beauty of its scenery, stalactite decoration, variety of shapes and sizes of cave spaces. The caves are characterized by an unfavourable situation, namely absolute darkness, which is a great challenge for the photographer - how to light the scene? When photographing "over water", I mainly focus on landscape and street photography.
