Carlos wins the European Wildlife Photographer of the Year

This is good news again. This month I have won the award "European Wildlife Photographer of the Year" in the Waterworld category. Another of my images was awarded with a "highly commended" prize i nthe same category. This contests takes place in Germany and my photos were selected among 7000 images from 24 different countries.
This is a good motivation to keep working hard in getting new images.

2nd Prize to the Best Portfolio in Kuala Lumpur

Last week I was awarded with the 2nd prize to the Best Portfolio during the MIDE dive show that takes place in Kuala Lumpur. For this photo contest I chose a selection of photos from tiny gobies to whales and ship wrecks. 2008 is being a great year so far, so keep my fingers crossed for some more !

Diving at home

Summer is finally here, in the North of Spain and conditions for diving are being great, with calm seas and relatively good visibility. I have been visiting some places where I hadn’t been diving for many years. Another day I´ll explain some differences I’ve noticed during these years. Under the right conditions and at the right time this place has a stunning light that can keep me underwater for more than two hours.
