René Weterings Just to promote the salty waters of The Netherlands..... Shrimp (Palaemon serratus). Picture is taken with my Canon G9, f8.0, 1/60s, ISO100, Ikelite housing, single Ikelite DS51 strobe, INON UCL330 + INON UCL165. Right out of the camera....nothing edited.

René Weterings Pictures is taken on the 2nd of january 2012 in lake "Grevelingen", near the village of Dreischor at a depth of only 7m during a nightdive. Watertemperature was 6 Celcius and the visability about 4-5m (which is good for our standards).

Ken Thongpila Beautiful shrimp and nice shot René Weterings :-) Also always love to read details attached on each shot.... Very nice

René Weterings Thank you! This shrimp normally is somewhat transparant, but this one has a strange white body, I don't know what is causing that.
