MARTIN VOELLER: JAPANESE NUDIBRANCHS

Martin Voeller is an avid diver and underwater photographer who lives in Tokyo, Japan. His favourite subjects are sharks for wide-angle and nudibranchs for macro. Having dived from the southernmost tip of Japan (Okinawa) to the northern tip (Hokkaido) and much in between, he enjoys anything ranging from tropical to cold water diving which Japan offers. He continues to explore Japan's diverse formations and topography, and his mission is to share this with the rest of the world. Here is a selection of some of his nudibranch shots. As he says, they look just like Christmas decorations. Scroll down and pick your favourite to win a DIVE subscription.
