It’s high noon. In front of the abandoned hotel named paradies is a shallow but famous dive site with identical name.
Banded shrimpfish (Aeoliscus strigatus) are dancing between the stilts of the old jetty and sunlight bursts through the planking.
I was holding my breath for a long time to capture this scenery.
This is one of my works i like very much.
