Egypt. Red Sea. The cave of Shaab Claudio
Shaab Claudio's cave is located in the Red Sea off the coast of Egypt. It is located in the area known as the "Fury Shoals". Shaab Claudio comes in the form of two large rooms linked by a small underwater arm. The ceiling height is about 8 meters (24 feet). They are the largest caves in the Red Sea. To take advantage of the lighting effects, it is better to dive between 11 am and 1 pm. This is the best time of the day to have the lights rays very dense.
For photographers, the magic play of light is such that we can spend an hour underwater to capture these unique moments. It took a few dives to fully capture this magical place and restore the atmosphere in the pictures. Indeed, the rooms are so large that it is difficult know where to start. The cave photography can be compared to the photography of wrecks: it takes time to learn and understand a subject.
