Cenote Angelita: An Underwater River by Anatoly Beloschin

It seems impossible, but these photographs of Anatoly Beloschin shows an untold story of an underwater river in Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula called Cenote Angelita or “Little Angel”. While it may seem that the divers are hovering above a small creek, the photos were actually shot in a submerged cave.

The formation of the ‘river’ is the result of a phenomenon called halocline where water of different salinity form layers because of variation in density. Cenote Angelita is made of fresh water until about 29 meters where it changes to a 1 meter of hyrdogen sulfide and the res is filled with saltwater from 30-60 meters deep. So in reality, the so-called river is actually saltwater resting at the bottom of the cave.
