Yucatan – April 2014

First underwater images for a while!

We decided to take Thomas on a little adventure. After researching the various possible destinations, we choose Mexico, which offered a good combination of diving and resort facilities.

Also it was great to catch-up with my friend Budgie Burgess, a brilliant guide who made me discover the cenotes around the Riviera Maya quite a few years ago. Budgie & I had fun playing with lights   in Grand Cenote and Calaverde in Tulum.

I also ventured into the big vast Atlantic ocean to see what’s there.

Well, it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything on this blog. We’ve been kind of busy since the arrival of Thomas.

Here are a few images from the expedition.

Maldives

Images from my recent Maldives trip have been used on the cover of Narked Diver, the magazine for sport divers who don’t take themselves too seriously.

The magazine features an article about Jamie who gets thrown straight at the deep end after joining a 2-week liveaboard in the Northern atolls. In this issue of Narked Diver, you can also read about the discovery of the spreadeagle ray and get new tips on natural buoyancy skills.

I’d like to thank all the participants for making this trip memorable.

Silly Seals!

Having discussed the possibility of a seal photography trip with Alex Mustard for a while, I called Clive Pearson at Clovelly Charters to see if he coud accommodate a few snappers for a couple of days. Staying at Millcombe House on Lundy, Alex & I were joined by Eleonora Manca, Dan Bolt and Dan Hopkins. The trip was quite productive and the grey seals were extremely playful !
