Well I managed to get the first dives of the year in this weekend and they really made me realise how much I had been missing diving! I was out on Silver Sky with Skipper Jim Easingwood and my Buddies Gordon Mackie and Charlie Leeson from Dive More Scotland were on board as well. It was a great trip and even before the diving started we were rewarded for our early start in sub zero temperatures by the most amazing sunrise. The first dive was on the Glanmire, vis was around 4 metres and I had an enjoyable dive. The second dive was a drift dive along past the Skelly at St. Abbs Head and this was by far my favourite dive of the day. I found a fish that I had never seen before. I think it is a Sea Snail ? but with its striking markings I thought I had found something new and exotic. If anybody knows for sure please let me know.

A slow start to the year

Poor weather on the East Coast has curtailed diving activities so far this year. I have kept myself busy enjoying my topside photography. I have managed to have a few exciting encounters catching swans in flight and a wonderfully coloured Kingfisher. i have also been trying out new photo techniques such as HDR so check out my image of Cockenzie Power Station.
