Pour Matty Smith, l'une des parties les plus excitantes de toute plongée est le moment où notre tête se glisse sous la surface de l'eau. Le suspense de l'inconnu et de ne pas savoir quelle créature se planque en dessous de vous. Cette partie transitoire de passer d'un élément à l'autre est tout simplement magique. Dans sa série de photos "Over/Under" Matty vous transporte dans un univers parallèle à la fois effrayant et fascinant.

    An American crocodile in a saltwater mangrove of the coast of Cuba. A lot of people don't realise that crocs live in America and assume all crocodilians there to be alligators, when in the in fact three species; alligators, crocs and caiman! The easiest way to tell them apart is the width of their snout! I'll be doing an evening talk on my photography and travels at the Australia Museum, Sydney July 2. If you're in town it would be great to have your company :) details here: http://australianmuseum.net.au/event/night-talk-a-parallel-universe-windows-beneath-the-waves @nikon_australia #mynikonlife #d810 #nikkor #aquaticadigital #australiamuseum #cuba #caribbean #crocodile #overunder #earthpix @earthpix #hot_shotz #madeofocean @ocean @theimagereview @thephotosociety @thenakedocean #thephotosociety #thenakedocean #mattysmithphoto #picoftheday #snorkel #mangrove @natgeocreative @natgeo #natgeo #natgeowild

    A long finned eel in the Sydney Botanical Gardens pond. But before you write this less than beautiful creature off consider it's amazing life. This eel, along with all it's mates would have been born just off the coast of New Caledonia in the South Pacific before starting its 2000km journey to Australia. Upon it's arrival into Sydney Harbour, in this ones case, it would have waited for a wet and stormy night to exit the sea and slither across the grass into this freshwater pond. Here it will live for the next 30 years or so before the urge to reproduce becomes too strong and it will do a return journey from where it came to breed and then die. And the beat goes on. They've been doing this for millions of years, long before the first settlers arrived in Aus. Amazing! And all without any immigration problems or even a passport!

    I'll be watching you! An #American #saltwater crocodile deep in a mangrove off the coast if Cuba. Crocodiles (& Alligators) have a set of second clear eye lids that they can close over their eyes when they dive underwater to enable them to see, kind of like their own built in swimming googles, amazing! You can see it flick over just before they submerge their head, this guy did just that as I was photographing him. It was then time for me to move on I thought, luckily he was only small .... ish! @nikon_australia #mynikonlife #d810 #nikkor #14-24mm #aquaticadigital water housings #crocodile #cuba #earthpix @earthpix #gardenofthequeens #hot_shotz @hot_shotz #madeofocean @ocean #thenakedocean @thenakedocean #natgeo #nature @nature #natureonly @natureonly #ocean #oceangeographic #picoftheday #postcardsfromtheworld #snorkel #splendid_animals @splendid_animals #thephotosociety #worldshotz @worldshotz #water_of_our_world
