Cenote lilies win the prize

This image, Lilies With Trees, was taken in the well-known Car Wash cenote in Tulum, Mexico by Elaine White, and was named Overall Winner in the recent Northern Underwater Photography Group’s Open Print Competition, the third such annual event.

“The more you look at this image the more you see; she has used Snell’s window to great effect, and the reflections and colours of the lilies, water and trees are mesmerising,” commented the judges.

White, who won a dive-package with Costa Brava centre Fleet Divers, also topped the British & Irish Macro category with a portrait of a shrimp.

The 56 entries were displayed at the Great Northern Dive Show in Manchester and visitors each voted for their eight favourite shots.
