'Underwater photography is no easy feat, especially in the dark.

But the photographers featured in the annual Underwater Photographer of
the Year competition manage to illuminate the dark depths, uncovering
just a skerrick of the creatures that dwell beneath the surface — one
marine scientists admit we've "barely scratched."

The UK-based competition has celebrated underwater photography since
1965, attracting photographers from all over the globe. There are 13
categories in the competition including macro, wide angle, portrait,
behaviour, marine conservation, and wreck photography, and there are
four that are specifically dedicated to British waters.

American photographer Renee Capozzola took the Underwater Photographer
of the Year title for her stunning image "Shark's Skylight," which was
shot in August 2020 on the island of Moorea, French Polynesia.'
