A unique encounter with an octopus

At this year's diving holiday in Sardinia we had a dive with all the time an octopus on our side. Usually these animals run away when they encounter people. This Octopus showed us its full beauty several minutes and started getting bigger, as if he wanted us to make clear that he is not afraid of us. A truly unique underwater experience.

Nudibranches (Fadenschnecken)

In the waters of the Mediterranean around the Lavezzi islands, there are many kinds of Nudibranches. To find them you have to dive very carefully as they are sometimes only millimeters in size. They usually sit on Eudendrium, sway in the flow, look very fragile and unfold its true color variety. To really get sharp photos that bring their beauty to express, you have to be very patient and make lots of them...

Lavezzi (Corse)

In the south of Corsica, in the Strait of Bonifacio, is a little paradise: the Lavezzi islands. Spectacular diving, turquoise sea, bizarre rocks and secluded bays invite you to linger. The islands are protected and accommodate some endemic plants and animals. Already in the beginning of the day turns out spectacular, with a breathtaking sunrise.

The wonderfully clear waters ideal for swimming and snorkeling.

Dusk brings out magical light games....and sometimes animals.

 Finally, a wonderful day ends with a spectacular sunset.
