Last photo from recent dive trip to the WW1 German wrecks... by Andrew Falconer
Last photo from recent dive trip to the WW1 German wrecks. Viz and light not good but part of the atmosphere. All photos taken with my new Olympus toughTG2 which is a significant improvement on previous model, and is still small enough.
