Beneath the Ice

by Tobias Richter

The view beneath the icy surface shows the bizarre tangle of aquatic plants in the Lago d'Antorno in front of the peaks of Cadini Misurina. The picture was taken on a sunny autumn day in the Sexten Dolomites using an underwater housing.
Equipment: 5dII, 16-35 II, Ikelite housing

What a really spectacular photo! I’ve never seen anything like it before. Terrific color and a view from down under to the high clouds in the sky.

This is an incredible shot, one of those “wow” photos. And I did look on your web site and the pictures are just overwhelming. I will revisit your site, everything in there is fantastic. And I like the way it’s set up, easy to see it all. Thanks SO very much for sharing.
