As a guest speaker at the Heron Island Dive Festival I was able to enter photos that I shot at the Festival into the Shootout. What a great week it was, wonderful diving, great company and my FIRST “roll” of digital with my new Nikon D7000, Nauticam Housing and Inon strobes. I’ve written a couple of stories about it all that I will post after magazine publication, but just want to say here how excellent the diving was (even if the water was a bit chilly for my tropically acclimatised metabolism at 20 deg.C.) and how pleasant the resort was – especially with the dive guides minimalising the majority of the “Nanny State” rules so common elsewhere in Queensland.
No only did I have a good time, two of my photos won prizes. First prize for “Over/under” – Stingray in the sun.
And Runner-up prize for “Behaviour” category – Whiplash
