Sea angel portrait
DESCRIPTIONThis macro photograph shows a portrait of a sea angel. The sea angel is a small animal, growing to a length of about 5 cm. It got its name from the wings resembling the wings of an angel. However, its "horns" suggest something else - it is actually a predator. This photo was taken while diving under the ice of the White Sea at the level of the Arctic Circle.
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.
