Emerald Sea Photography
The most beautiful and highly decorated underwater caves in the world can be found on Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula. If you look at a map, you'll find no rivers at all on the surface, they all flow underground, through the limestone bedrock. They are fed by the rain in the interior, which slowly makes it way to the Caribbean Sea in the east.
For an Underwater Photographer, capturing the stunning beauty of those caves is one of the most challenging and difficult things that I have ever done. The water is often crystal clear, but the pitch blackness makes even focusing the camera tough. I do hope that you enjoy the results, check out the galleries below.
