I long wanted to do a black and white underwater series, and finally here it is… The photographs are from the Azores.
The Azores are a phantastic spot to see marine life, especially Mobula at Princess Alice Bank. This underwater video is a collaboration with my son who did most of the wide-angle shots, and composed the music. https://vimeo.com/350355983 Diving the Azores.
Blue sharks populate the waters around the Azores archipelago. They undertake long transatlantic migrations. Offshore diving with these elegant and curious animals allows to study them at arm’s length.
Princess Alice Bank at the Azores is a volcanic seamount on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge rising from more than thousand metres to a depth of around 40 metres below the ocean surface. The abundance of marine life, especially manta rays, make it an exquisite, albeit remote and exposed offshore spot for diving.
