Second in Unterwasser Visions June 2012

The theme for the Unterwasser Visions photo contest in June 2012 was caves, and my image from the Cape Verde Islands was awarded a splendid second place by the jury.


Anyone registered at the Unterwasser website can enter the Visions competition, which runs from January until November every year.

The image shows Romina Andreini of Cabo Verde Diving posing in the Regona cave at the Cape Verdean island of Sal, which I visited in 2008.

The jury was particularly looking for the beautiful light often found around cave openings, and wrote this about my image (translated from German):

The ambient light is wonderfully captured, and the diver perfectly framed in the cave. The yellow spot of light is the icing on the cake.

A very close race

I am currently 13th in the individual standings, and incredibly share this spot with Team Norway teammates Lasse Iversen and Lill Haugen. The fourth team member, Nils Aukan, is just one point behind in 16th spot.

In spite of flying in such a tight formation individually, the team did not excel this month and was only awarded a 6th place - dropping one spot to 5th in the overall team standings.

Join the contest!
