The Story:  Illuminated under light emitted by the substrobe, a seahorse (Hippocampus histrix ) shown through the eyes of an underwater photographer, in a state of perfect synch with the environment. Erect , rocking to the rhythm of light swell beating the reef , bone structure of your body is confused with the shadows , in a dance that enhances the mystical of its existence. 

A few meters away, an army of eels watches the scene in a relaxed way, because they know that, in the case of any threat, to hide again on the seabed from which they now appear, it would be a matter of hundredths of a second.

Location:  Dumaguete, Philippines

Camera: Olympus TG4 (F6.3, 1/200, ISO 200)
