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.
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.
Once a year the Baseline dive-team cleans up the lake. A lot of litter is collected by divers and will be recycled.
I’am trying different setups for an “underwater photo studio” specially for model- and product-photography. Same as in a normal studio; lighting is important.
This is a great way to explore a wreck. Especially in deep, cold and dark waters.
In my opinion the trick is to capture the ambiance underwater, but it’s a challenge!
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.
Officially the summer of 2015 started today, but we had a lot of rain as you can see the drops on the surface of the lake of Vinkeveen.
Due to limestone rocks in the Adriatic the water sometimes gets milky. This makes wrecks like SS Lina extra spooky.
