The 2010 competition is now settled. My first time competing in NM; came 12'th of 37 competitors. Quite OK. This picture (previously published here) achieved 3'rd place in the 'pool' cathegory. This year the judges actually selected pictures as announced, i.e., "fresh new thinking", which I hadn't quit trusted when I selected my pictures. Well done judges! Other pictures with reasonable scores include another pool picture and the isopod"/Bo

The album from Aqualund's wreck-diving trip to Narvik, Norway, is now published. The air temperature was around zero centigrade while the water was 8°C. We managed 10 one-hour dives in 5 days being quite comfortable thanks to a lot of under-garments. We dove the ore cargo ships Neuenfels, Stråssa, Fisser and Romanby, and the destroyers Hermann Kunne, Wilhelm Heidkamp and Anton Schmitt.

A new album with UW pictures from Sweden. The album contains our pictures from the Swedish Championship in UW photography, and pictures from our training session in Smögen before the competition. In Smögen we finally understood the techique to capture wide angle pictures in bad visibility, as this picture shows. Unfortunately, we were not able to repeat the concept at the competition. There you go!

This picture earned us First Place in the Theme-class 'Surface' in the Swedish Championship i UW photography 2010 this weekend. We didn't fare as well in the other classes 'wide angle' and 'macro' and we finished as #6 among the 11 finalists. Congratulations to our club mates in Aqualund, Ronnie & Maria, who became Swedish Champions this year! The competition was held in Hamburgsund under rather bad weather conditions with hard winds and silty water.

We will soon publish other pictures from our dive vacation on the Swedish west coast.

The end of 2009 is fast approaching and there will probably be only one more dive (the traditional New Year's Eve splash at Ön). So its appropriate to summarise by a new album of UW pictures from Sweden. Actually, its a summary of two years during which Steina has become quite active behind the camera. This beaty is by her making.
