Shark attack ??? - we are just snorkeling with a guide when a shark swims between us. You could image what my heart is doing in this moment.

In the Workshop a view a few second before.

amazingly beautiful picture
so bright and clear

Hi Achim, scary!! I swam at Rarotonga and was told the sharks didn't cross the reef into Muri Lagoon!! We swam daily and walked out to the islands off shore many times...

But what sort of shark did the locals say it was? It definitely isn't a White Pointer!!

Good capture - both photos are good, and thank you for sharing - well maybe not!! I'm not sure if I want to go back there now!!


Stunning Achim - the first time I tried to handfeed the fish they were so quick I did not see them coming and they gave me quite a scare.
But swimming with sharks - no thanks you.
Although maybe it was a reef shark and they are not quite so dangerous.
Lovely quality of underwater light.

Hi Achim,
du bist aber wirklich mutig, im Wasser mit einem shark, na das traut sich nicht jeder. Super Unterwasserfoto, gutes Licht; die Schaerfe und die Farben kommen sehr gut an.

hello achim!
great sea shot, very nice composition with this fish.

Hi Achim

It wasn't your time! A fantastic underwater shot of the rogue shark & myriad of reef fish. Well done!

great shot Achim! I remember swimming off the coast of Florida and I gang of nurse sharks skimmed right past me and I almost had a heart attack! Then, we went into the deep water and a GIANT Tarpin glided past me...I got out of the water..it was just too much!
I'll be back............!

Bonsoir Achim.
Splendide cette photo sous marine.
Comme je suis plongeur, je ne peux qu'apprécier.
Bravo !

look like a real alive sushi factory! Under the sea the sushi have rice by inside and are so fresh then they stay alive!
That's cool to be able to do good photo under water! Conditions of light have a pleasant mood! I like the beauty of all those fish who are vivid!

Hi Achim,

WOW!!! You are very brave!!! :))
A wonderful photo!! I really like the way the sun light brightens up the bottom of the sea. :)

Very well done and TFS
