Under The Mediterranean Sea. Mid June 2021 Part 1

I found the missing photos! I thought late last June I didn’t get in the water much as it might have been too cold. It wasn’t too cold! I found the missing photos on another library hard drive.

I still hadn’t figured out the settings, hence the photos are grainy, plus there was a lot of sediment. I prefer not to use flash as I don’t want to harm their eyes or attract bigger fish I might pee my pants if they arrive. Just saying.

At least every week there was a new baby fish cloud to swim through. It was amazing how much they grew in a week!

The light when the sun hits ripples is like smoke on a ceiling or amazing abstract patterns

Every sea bream has its water column level. Salemas I rarely saw near the surface. Saddled sea breams and these guys white sea breams (I think. They could be striped sea breams) stayed mostly in the middle and upper parts but did go to the sea floor for snacks occasionally. It’s not deep where I snorkel. Perhaps 3-5 meters. Honestly I have no idea but it’s not deep. I do know I can’t dive far down. I did every now and then to collect drink cans or an abandoned shell and though I was going to run out of air! Even a little way down I noticed the pressure, yet I went for more daily or as often as I could.

I think these white or striped sea breams
Teenage striped sea breams
Saddled sea breams
Jelly Fish!

Not by this guy, but I got stung twice last year by a jelly. My foot and my forehead. Four times I’ve been stung by jellyfish!

The way the sun hits the bottom can be magical

Part 2 to come!
