I wanted a shot of the stern of the Giannis D, but there were loads of divers on the wreck. Waiting until the last moments of the dive as everyone headed for safety stops I got this shot in peace and quiet!

A festive, though rather chilly (6 degrees) dive in Capernwray Quarry, Lancashire 23rd December, around the Jet Plane.
Runner Up - worthy of note but not a medal winner - an equal 4th place if you like! Runner Up 2012

This is actually a split shot, but more topside than underside so I put it in the Topside category. I moved into deeper water but didn't have an underside subject, so used my strobes to light the underside area, creating the turquoise colour.
