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!

Whilst testing a new zoom lens out at Bosham, Chichester Harbour I focussed on this duck, anticipating it taking off. I was amazed when it completely lost it's footing and went head first into the banking. The duck seemed fine and waddled away.

Lake Coniston taken from the John Ruskin launch on a crisp December day. This also shows Pier cottage where Donald Campbell launched his Bluebird boat. I have dived Coniston many times over the years, but rarely seen it as mirror like as this.
