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.

Do you need to be fit to dive?

Adventurer, technical diver, stuntman, climber and all-round Action Man Andy Torbet knows a thing or two about keeping fit. Here he gives some basic advice to help us all get back into shape for when we can hit the water again.

Ship shape

The skipper promised me a wreck, so it must be down here somewhere. If the vis was better, I might even be able to see it.

Things fall apart

I can’t quite understand it. How did that happen? Every item of my scuba kit was fine when I put it away.

Free and squeezy

Freediving – it’s basically snorkelling with good PR. It involves holding your breath, often to the point of semi-suffocation. What’s so free about that?
