Russian photographer Anatoly Beloshchin is no stranger to adventures, having submerged with sharks and whales, along with trekking through Antarctica, but his latest quest might be the best of the lot.

He went diving in the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico, into cenotes – which are basically sink holes, created after cave walls have collapsed.

Beloshchin documented his discovery by taking pictures and when he dived into the 200ft Angelita cenote, he found an underwater river, which let’s face it, is nothing short of amazing.

The river was actually created because of a naturally occurring event known as halocline.

That’s where two bodies of water that have different salt densities hit, and then separate.

In this case, a layer of hydrogen sulphide separates the salty river water from the fresh water, creating the amazing visual effect.
