Awarded underwater photography

We love to photograph in the Red Sea. Which my travel blog followers know well by know. 🙂

It is such a joy to dive into the Red Sea and explore the sealife, the underwater world, which is so beautiful, silent and fantastic. Totally amazing.

What a joy it is for a photographer, to receive an award and a recognition, and this from National Geographic.

My underwater macrophotograph received first an editor’s note and was soon chosen by National Geographic editors as 1 of the Daily Dozen (best photos) January 30, 2019.

This underwater view looks like a painting! The colors blend together like an impressionist’s brush strokes. Great work getting sharpness in the fish’s eyes.

Whiteband Damsel, Plectroglyphidodon leucozonus in the Red Sea. In a small cave, there was this wonderful 10 cm damselfish, among the fantastic corals and seagrass.
It is a little bit of an aggressive fish, protecting its territory. This you can see in this photo, where the fish comes right at me. Look closely and you can see the teeth. It did bite me. If you thought macro photography is tough on land… try it underwater!
We hope to visit the Red Sea soon and who knows what we might capture this time with the cameras.
Here are a few wonderful sealife photographs:
