Its time to go underwater and try to describe the beauty as well as the difficulties of taking picture underwater. The location is the Aegean sea surrounding the island of Alonissos which belongs in the Sporades complex together with the islands of Skiathos and Skopelos. Please take a DEEP BREATH and follow me……….

Great yellow coral in the shape of pipes.

@Behrooz Sangani: I just dive, taking a deep breath, my camera is waterproof up to 10m, then try to focus and CLIK, as simple as that, focussing is THE MOST DIFFICULT THING UNDER WATER. Greetings
