How rad are these compelling visions of the underwater world and
surfers/swimmers mid-action as they’re thrown down by the force of waves? They’re part of Australian photographer, Mark Tipple’s, ‘The Underwater Project.’

“Surf photography’s been around forever, I wanted something different” Mark says.

“I was bored of shooting empty waves. One day, I was caught inside by a big wave and as I dove underwater I suddenly thought I’d see what the kids next to me were going through – I turned the camera on them.”

More on The Underwater Project (where you can also buy his prints and book).

I wonder what kind of camera he uses to take these photos, I've always wanted to take underwater photos myself as well! Ahhh, the nice, clear beach sounds so good right now!

WHile I looking to these underwater photos, I realized that it is time to get rid of my fear of the sea. It is so beautiful down there.
