How to photograph the most photographed wreck in the World, Thistlegorm, I thought - and almost dug myself into the bottom under the stern to get a tall perspective. 16mm, Minolta 700si in Seacam housing. No strobe. Agfa Scala b/w slide film.
I call this picture "Thirst" because of the almost scorched deserty atmosphere, like from another planet. Basis is a b/w shot (Agfa Scala exposed w/out strobe at ISO 1600)from a nightdive. Image then Photoshopped and partially coloured
Thingvellir, Iceland. The Sillfra crevice lies right on top of the mid-atlantic divide. Kodak Ektrachrome 100VS. Spotmetered at the entrance
