Second place in wreck image competition

My image of the rescue steamer S/S Parat was voted into second place in the 'ambient light' theme competition at the Facebook-based wreck photography group Wreckshhots.



Posted on Feb 24, 2013
Wreckshots is a very popular group among wreck enthusiasts, and rightly so: The members post a steady stream of top-class wreck images from around the world.

Second place for S/S Parat

Every month there is a photo competition, and in February I entered the image above, showing the rescue steamer S/S Parat located at the mouth of the Sognefjord on the Norwegian west coast.

Guest judge John Bantin awarded the image second place, behind winner Tony Gilbert who entered a spectacular image of the Rabat wreck located at Lanzarote, Canary Islands.

S/S Parat was sunk by Allied aircraft in December 1944, and lies alongside the big freighter Ferndale which was sunk in the same attack. Separated by just four feet, the twin wrecks is a spectacular dive.
