    When you dive in this natural cave called Cenote Angelita, the light goes from green to blue, creating a beautifully surreal scene. At about 30 meters deep, there is a layer of hydrogen sulphide which separates the fresh water from the deeper salt water. This atmosphere is similar to a lunar landscape. It's an amazing and unique experience in the life of an underwater photographer. The mysticism and beauty of this underwater landscape makes me feel like I discovered another world.

    The colors, composition and otherworldly feel of this image immediately caught my eye. It stands out over a lot of diving images that I have seen. I immediately thought, where is this? Where is the diver going? What is that tree doing submerged underwater? When a photo gets me thinking and also looks like a piece of art—you know you are doing something right.
