Holding my breath for the Christ of the Abyss, San Fruttuoso, Italia

If you visit San Fruttuoso (in the middle of Portofino Natural park, close to Genova, Italy), take the opportunity for snorkelling a few hundred meters off the shores.


and reach the middle of San Fruttuoso bay, where cyan waters turn into dark blue.


Where you meet a yellow buoy, there give a look deep down to -12 meters


Surrounded by the same fishes sooner or later will reach your dinner table … here is the Christ of the Abyss!


Pictures shot with Nikon D800 with my Olympus Though TG-1, still though enough to survive my deep apnoea until – 5 meters 🙂 Click each picture to zoom.

How to shoot amazing underwater pictures

Just buy the Olympus Tough TG-1, set it on "iAuto" and shoot.

Just buy the Olympus Tough TG-1, set it on “iAuto” and shoot. The A.I. of this small camera works very well underwater. The fast f/2 lens let you have sharp pictures even in low light conditions, at least with static/slow subjects. The additional white LED gives macros brilliant colours.

Among the very few defects, colour vibrance quickly decreases in low lights, like probably with other underwater compact cameras. Big temperature differences (hot to cold) caused condensation on lens and LCD, however both disappearing in a few minutes. Last but not least, the three screws of the protective lens are not tough at all, being already rusty after a few weeks of use.

Judge the pictures we shot in Greece (Poros and Serifos) this summer holidays by clicking on this new portfolio gallery: deep blue!
