Already seen those before on the same site. :)
Not so bad, the water are flat, which is exactly how I like them, and viz, eventhough blurry much better than what we usally get in Tel-Aviv.

At the begning I also wondered if it was "pasted" there, but it was taken by a reputable photographer, and it also apeared in a reputable israeli diving magazine. I guess it's not fake, just a one of those once-in-a-life-time photos. :D

I don't know exactly how the picture was taken, but I read a part of an interview with the photographer, and he does use digital cameras and photoshop, which I think it's just the same as filters, but doing it after the picture was taken, not really cheating. :)

Erik, this proves that any water are better than being dry. :)

And I think that on some days (especially now), those conditions can still compete with our part of the med, since it's quite dirty with lots of particles form the nile's delta.

Great picture Adrian.

The different shades of blue give it a very nice atmosphere. Cannot wait to see more of them. Will you place this one and perhaps some others too on your website?

Michael,

Are those corals growing on the wreck, that look like branching shrubs?

Ahh, it is awesome to browse the world! Great sharing of photos.

Not sure of the exact defenition, but they are of the soft kind. I also think they burn if you touch them.
I was suprised to see how red they are in that picture, since without the camera's light they are in different shades of green, and it's only about 12m-14m there.
There are a few tiny sea-horses living there by the way, but of the stretched kind, that looks like an oboe.

I actually think that this site's downside is that it needs more nature. There are more fruitful sites in Eilat.
