So sorry to hear the sad news about the passing of the magic underwater photographer Tony Malmqvist.
In deep thoughts with his relatives and friends all over the world. I see every day one of his magic pictures hanged in my house, inspiring, and full of memories of the time I have been so lucky to spend with Tony. Forever in the Blue.
