At night you can really approach fish and take good shots. Try it.
I'm posting some pics taken in Karystos Eubeoa (just east of Athens) during a night dive my son (DZ) and our friend and top-instructor Thalia Nikitopoulou (Dikelas Dive Center) participated in. The site is located southeast of Karystos along the road to Bouros. We dove in waters that were only about 20 C but outside at 10:30 PM the temp had dropped down to about 14 C.
Now about the fish and mollusks. Far less fish seen; but some interesting specimens. The White-spotted Octopus is not the usual or commonest of the octopi seen in the sea - it is called Melidona in Greek (Octapus macropus). I was really impressed with the Damsel Fish photo on the "colourful wall". The last photo of a goby unidentified. This is how it should be - the sea full of mystery....
I encourage people to get out and take pics, explore and just be - in nature.
The sea at night can really help.
