PhotoFriday – ‘Intense’

This week’s Photo Friday entry: ’Intense’

For a diver like me who doesn’t much like to move her fins much, any full on swimming is intense. Finding and watching the schooling barracuda at Ras Mohammad is especially so as they tend not to always be in the same place (so you might have to swim the length of the reef to get to them) and they tend to be quite deep and constantly changing depths. To the unwary diver they can be mesmerising and before you know it you are way below 30m (on Nitrox this is v dangerous) or you’ve stayed too long watching them and run out of air or no-deco time! :-/

Tell me in the comments what is it about scuba diving do you find intense?

New Flipboard Ocean & Photography Magazines

I don’t know how many of you use Flipboard but I’m just getting into it as a way of archiving all the interesting links I find for a particular topic. At the moment I’ve started curating two magazines, one about the oceans (scuba, the environment, cool photos etc) and one about Photography. Please find the links below if you’d like to follow them in flipbaord.

Nadya’s image of Me & Snappers is winning again

On International Women’s Day no less, Nadya posted another win for her image of me taking snaps of snappers! This time the 2014 Monochrome Awards. Go Nadya!

If you want to see why I was photographing up so close see below or here’s my post of schooling snappers from the archives.

Published for Science

I got a nice surprise a few days ago when my copy of the Annual review of Marine Science (vol 7) arrived, I’d contributed the picture above taken at the Mangroves in Raja Ampat to Johan van de Koppelpaper’s paper on Long-Distance Interactions Regulate the Structure and Resilience of Coastal Ecosystems.

My pic is on p149 if you have a copy.

PhotoFriday – ‘Gray’

This week’s Photo Friday entry: ’Grey’

With all the news recently on the manatees flocking en-mass to 3 sister springs in Florida (so much so they had to close it to the public), I though I’d revisit my time with them for this weeks theme. They are grey, cute and like to be tickled and nothing to do with 50 shades of anything!

Psst… Please check out my excellent used Nikon Gear page, I’ve swapped over systems and I’m still trying to raise money on my previous gear get them now before they go.

Woohoo, sold one of my Nikon lenses

Due to lack of time and energy I haven’t really been pushing selling the last of my Nikon lenses but I only have two left now since I sold my Tokina 11-16 last week!

See my selling page here for latest up to date list with prices and photos:

– Nikon 80-400mm VR (boxed with instructions, carry case & lens hood)
– Nikon 18-200mm VR (boxed with instructions & lens hood)
– Lee filters Starter kit and 72mm ring (these are new, never used).

Since I no longer have a Nikon camera it seems a shame to leave these lenses sitting in their boxes on my bookshelf, you should get in touch and give them a new home! I can meet you in London if you want to inspect the lenses before you buy them. The money will come in very handy soon when I’m skint on maternity leave ;)
