[PHOTO ESSAY] The underwater colours of Porquerolles, France

As I just moved back from Scotland to France, from June to October, I went diving 5 times between Toulon and Cavalaire. Exploring the superb coastline of Var was a complete discovery for me. I heard many times that Port-Cros National Marine Park was certainly one of the best dive sites in France. However, its neighbour island, Porquerolles, near Giens Peninsula, amazed me the most by the diversity of marine species and their wonderful colours. As I upgraded my underwater camera last summer because of a breakdown on the previous one, the different dive sites of Porquerolles were the perfect playground to train with my new underwater camera system. I will soon publish a complete review of my Canon G7X with the Fantasea housing that I completed with a Nauticam CMC macro lens for the first time. In the meantime, I let you enjoy this underwater photo summary of French Riviera with my new camera.
