PHOTOS: The eerie beauty of underwater caves

These photographs, taken by master diver Martin Broen, show the beauty of underwater caves. Broen, from Buenos Aires, snapped the images over the course of three years while on trips to the Riviera Maya in Mexico, home of the world’s longest underwater cave system. The caves are accessible via cenotes, or sinkholes. (Caters News)
