"For me underwater photography is much more than taking a picture of a beautiful animal. I try to show all the beauty that involves it. That requires much time and dedication to each picture, and a great passion for the underwater world. This turtle was coming fron the surface with the sun behind it, and the sunrays surrounding it gave it a special majestry. I have a great passion for turtles, and I spend many hours with the green turtles"
