Bonaire Underwater Favorites


Bonaire UW Favorites, a set on Flickr.

Please visit my collection of underwater images shot in Bonaire, Dutch Antilles between 2007 and 2012. Gradually I will be working towards extending this portfolio in the next decades to follow.

My images are a collection of multiple disciplines organized as “Reef Structures”, “Life on the Reef”, “Wreck Photography”, “The Morays” and “Nightly Adventures”.

Enjoy watching, feel free to reach out to me if you would like to use my images for commercial purposes.

A gift: Backyard Lunchtime Swans


Today is the best day of the year to shoot natural light UW pictures in the Netherlands, with the sun at it’s highest point between 11:30 and 13:00, and solar power “8”. Unfortunately I’m in the office today, maybe next year …

That’s what I wrote earlier this morning …

Luckily I found that, during lunch, in my backyard, this amazing thing was happening!

I found some Swans with siblings during my regular office lunch break. What a pleasant surprise it was that I had my underwater camera gear at hand.

Additionally, as things didn’t get any better than this, I confirmed our trip to Bonaire, from December 10th until January 4th, 2012.
