Well it wasn't raining and that was a good enough excuse for me to take a half day off from work. I intended to see the sights of Dundee before giving my presentation in the evening. i had only been to Dundee once before and i had a few landmarks in mind to view. firstly there was Broughty Ferry Castle, then Claypots Castle then the frigate HMS Unicorn before Dundee's top tourist attraction RSS Discovery at Discovery point. I had a couple of hours to wander around the exhibition and the time disappeared very quickly. So much so that it was soon time to meet Vicky, who had arranged for me, to come up to give the talk. Needless to say i drove around the vicinity of the university before Vicky spied me and pointed me in the direction of a parking space.
Once set up the show went well and divers from the North side of the Firth of Forth got to hear about diving Southeast Scotland and see images of the areas top attractions in my presentation. 
I truly enjoyed my day out and my thanks goes to Vicky and her team who made the event run very smoothly. I'm now hoping to organise similar presentations at dive clubs throughout the central belt of Scotland. If you or your club are interested please just drop me a E mail.
I have been able to do a lot more of my topside rather than underwater images recently and i hope you enjoy them. I will be updating my galleries shortly and hopefully i will soon be back in the water with the start of the diving season.

Cool Diving on the East Coast

There was a moderate swell as we headed out in the Silver Sky to dive the Glanmire, but this was moderating all the time. Vis underwater was around 4 metres so none of my pics are worth showing. Much the same on the second dive on the Black Carr Gullies. The vis may have been poor and the water cold but the diving was good. I noted a lot of new stuff on the Glanmire that i had never seen before. Add to that Jim's excellent coffee and Mrs E's shortbread and it was another good trip to start the season off. The only pics i managed were of Jim coming to pick me up in Silver Sky. Conditions were a bit bumpy and the photography was challenging but i like these 2 shots.
