The Underwater Photography of the Year Competition announced its 2018 winners yesterday, and the photos are unbelievably gorgeous, capturing many different landscapes and creatures hiding in the deep (and shallows).
This competition has been going on for just a few years, and 110 photos received honors this year, out of more than 5,000 entries from 63 countries.
The awards include a variety of categories from photographer of the year to shipwrecks. Nearly every type of underwater photographer can compete.
I’ve been snorkeling once – and cannot imagine trying to take pictures at the same time.
