Sunlit dive

Sunlight shines into the water as a diver swims in a cenote in Mexico. “It’s an amazing and unique experience in the life of a underwater photographer,” says Your Shot photographer Fabrice Guerin. “The mysticism, beauty, and exuberance of these underwater landscapes make me feel like I discovered another world.”

Misty mountains

Your Shot photographer Karsten Hoenack says that he was “totally overwhelmed” by the beauty of this mountain chain in Coahuila, Mexico. “Mexico is one of those countries which surprises you around every corner,” he says. After this sight, he remembers, “Minutes later Monterrey City appeared. Fantastic how close to a big city such a beautiful landscape can be.”

I have been a cave diver since 1997, and I’ve always been amazed by the natural beauty and uniqueness that you can find in the cenotes of the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico. They are spectacular in many ways, some of them very obvious, like the enormous stalactites and stalagmites, crystal-clear water, and the mystery and history mixed in the middle of the jungle. But there is also a more subtle beauty in them, hidden in their unique colors and details that are not easily spotted by diving or snorkeling in them. So that is my goal, to capture the fantastic details hidden in these natural wonders.
