    Due to my profession as marine biologist the underwater pictures are the most interesting for me …. and they are wonderful!
    On the one hand they are not photo realistic artworks, on the other side they are so precise that species identification is possible. My favorite picture is a good example: the beautiful jellyfish, swimming in blue water and keeping it’s species-characteristic horizontal position, is a fully grown Rhizostoma pulmo.
    Thank you Markus, for your great work.
