Imagine yourself floating in a crystal-clear river filled with some of your favorite tropical fish. When you look down at the river bottom you see Stingrays and schools of Corydoras. When you look to your right you see Cardinal tetras, and to your left you witness schools of Severum cichlids.

You lie there, motionless, observing, and narrating what you see, what the fish do.
That’s what’s in this book.


What’s inside the book?

An underwater photography journey through clear water streams in the Orinoco River basin featuring over 150 species of freshwater fish. Explore the natural underwater world of Venezuela and Colombia, in the Lost World, the Amazonas inselbergs and other remote areas in the tropical rainforests of the Guiana Shield.

View the original colors of these species when they are in their natural habitats and get valuable information of their homes including GPS locations, pH and other species that share their biotopes. Learn what their scientific names mean or stand for, interesting anecdotes and observations of the fish behaviour in the wild, and underwater photography tips such as settings and the gear used to take each image.

You cannot preserve something that you don’t know exists, so delight your eyes with every image and have fun expanding your aquatic knowledge with every page.

The book is a fusion between nature, science and art.
