Photo reportage from underwater

My other great passion, besides flowers, is diving and the underwater world. In the last two years I have been more and more interested in marine biology and underwater photography. It is a truly fascinating world, often more interesting than the one you can find above the ocean. And it is terribly sad how we devastate it – whether by plastic pollution, chemicals, or indirectly through climate change. A month ago, we were diving in the Maldives, a beautiful place full of fish and huge coral reefs, which, however, almost died out last year due to the rapid warming of the oceans. Perhaps we will all finally wake up and try to save this wonderful world without which we could not even survive. And let’s just hope it’s not too late.
