'A picture is worth a thousand words, but an underwater one is worth a million'

Scuba diving is my ultimate passion; my love for it is so hard to explain, yet having my GoPro by my side gives you a small idea of what it's like to explore the world's oceans. Are you certified yet?

Because not every underwater photo is all about fish..

Then sometimes they just look plain scary

The ocean is full of weird and wonderful creatures

And objects too

Some are now part of the history of the ocean

Others like to keep hidden

Some you didn't even know lived in the ocean

But not everything has to be discovered with a tank on your back

Or even with your head under the water

Diving is also about friends

Pushing your comfort zones

All photos I took myself and are from my time working in Micronesia, apart from the few in Central America (Minus the ones from the awesome Brad Holland-underwater photographer at manta ray bay resort in yap)
