Just one of these super clear water days - it's been way too long since I had one, though. The Mediterranean is messed up in a way that thoroughly worries me. Waters are greenish and dusty pretty much everywhere I went this year. Malta, Cyprus, Southern Spain. 🤔 Everywhere I go local divers and people who know the seas comment on how things are different from a decade or so ago. Or even last year. .
My job - underwater photographer - has become a lot more challenging as clarity is pretty much a requirement for really good shots. Hazy water means I have to get close to the diver or model, while I prefer distance naturally. The bad waters did force me to look for other types of photography, and that lead me to new paths that really have given me super exciting opportunities in life. Including meeting an amazing woman that has given me more kindness and love in a short time than all my previous partners combined ♥️ 😘. Also it allows me to be more flexible in where I live, although I'll never stay long in a place where clear water is not within walking distance :). .
