Tributes are pouring in on social media following the untimely death of Shaun Arrigo, a Maltese photographer whose name had become synonymous with the sea.

Mr Arrigo, 50, spent most of his life capturing the underwater beauty of the Mediterranean Sea.

One of his latest productions was a fascinating documentary about Filfla that was launched earlier this year.

Tributes have also been paid to Shaun's brother Kurt Arrigo. The brothers, both keen divers, worked closely together and are credited with the discovery of Ġebel ġol-Baħar, a possible megalithic temple located underwater off the coast of St. Julian's, Malta. Taran Arrigo, their younger brother, also has a deep affinity with the sea and his own diving school.

Here are some of the most memorable shots from Shaun Arrigo's Instagram page, where he succinctly put his life's mission: "Live and love to capture light in motion." May he be remembered for his greatest passions.

And his final Instagram snap...
