DESCRIPTIONDiving is one of the most attractive and interesting sports, especially when you dive in a beautiful natural environment. These environments include the caves of the Mexican Yucatan. This photo shows a cave diver entering the caves through a sunlit cenote (small lake).
AUTHORI have been a photographer for a long time and after I started diving in 2003, I took this hobby to the underwater world. So now I shoot both "above water" and "under water". I have visited different parts of the world, from warm southern oceans and seas, to geographically temperate places, to northern areas with very cold water. In recent years I have focused on photography in flooded cave systems in the Yucatan. This Mexican peninsula is home to the largest flooded cave systems in the world, hundreds of kilometres long. The world of flooded caves absolutely captivates me and compels me to capture this beauty in photographs and share it with others.
