In crystal clear waters sunlight may travel 40 metres down. However the intensity will be very low. This picture shows a wreck at a depth of 24m at noon on a very sunny day. It is dark at the bottom, but if you look up you can still see the sun.



I must have swam past this wreck a few times over the years, because I never saw her before, but frequently dive  this lake. It is so dark you can miss her by just a couple of inches.


North Sea vizz

Due to weather conditions unfortunately the visibility in the North Sea isn’t to good at times. Still the Ghost Fishing divers do their job; getting rid of lost fishing nets.  I try to make the best of it,  showing the world what it’s like down there in these circumstances.



The stern of this sandbarge lies at a depth of 17m. It is pitch black down there. This pic is taken without flashes, 3 sec. exposure time,  ISO 5000 and f/11.
