All four team members collected points this month, for a total of 26 points - beating the spaniards and shortening the distance on the overall leaderboard were we still hold second place.

Overall, Spain leads with 59 points. Team Norway closed in on them this month and are now just 3 points behind with a total of 56 points.

The underwater recycling plant at Gulen Dive Resort was my choice of image for the February competition in Unterwasser Visions. I'm happy to see the jury awarding it 4th place.

Phoenix from the ashes

The topic of the month was 'Phoenix - trash as artificial homes', and the jury wanted pictures showing nature taking back trash utilizing it for living space.

My image of the underwater recycling station at Gulen Dive Resort finished in 4th place, while Lasse Iversen was awarded 9th place for his beautiful picture of two blennies in a paper bag, shot in Lembeh Strait.

Lill Haugen, who won individually last month, and Bjørnar Nygård both finished outside the top 10 this time, but still scored important points for the team.

Behind us in the team competition we now find Germany with 38 points and Switzerland with 30.

Team Norway consists of Bjørnar Nygård, Lasse Iversen, Lill Haugen and myself. Please click on the names to visit their respective homepages.
