    Edit Photo Details Cavern dive in Cenote carwash in Mexico   #scuba
    This is our first cavern dive in Carwash Mexico. During summer months, there is an algae layer at the surface, which traps much of the sunlight and creates a mysterious green atmosphere for deeper water space. As we sink down, an underwater secret garden reveals, just like a scene in a fantasy film.

    Whenever a photographer is able to capture an otherworldly surprise, the viewer is treated to a moment of pause while he evaluates what is taking place. In this picture, the moment after my pause, I want to dive alongside the swimmer and push into the ethereal green waters. Pictures such as this set a mood and also invite the viewer to imagine what he cannot see.

    Unreal shade of green, with the bright air bubbles floating to the surface, and what looks to be a tree underwater....magical environment. Congratulations on this excellent photo and your select!
