People regularly ask me if there is anything to see under water in the Netherlands. When scuba-diving comes up in a discussion in my home country it is rarely understood that bad visibility doesn’t mean there’s nothing to see. On the contrary, below the waterline the world is teeming with life and I think this photo shows that perfectly. So, if you’re willing to battle the often poor viz you’ll be in for a surprise!
