Have you ever watched the documentary film My Octopus Teacher? In this issue of EZDIVE, we follow Kate around the kelp forests of Cape Town in South Africa, where this amazing underwater spectacle is located. Further east, on Lady Musgrave Island in the southern Great Barrier Reef, you’ll have the chance to witness the hatching of sea turtles just like Katie did. Next, Henley delivers a great ‘underwater action movie.’ You’ll see what I mean when you see his photos of gannets on Shetland, to the north of Scotland.
Cephalopods are mysterious and dreamy with their faint blue glow. It is often said that blackwater photography is like stars shining in the darkness of night, so our contributor Alex shares his tips on blackwater photography without holding back. Finally, if you’re learning freediving, you may be struggling with equalization. Harry offers some advice on how, with practice, you can overcome this common problem for new divers.
With only a few months left in 2022, have you completed all your diving plans for the year?
This photo was taken in May 2019 in Puerto Galera, the Philippines, near White Beach. A few minutes into a fantastic night dive, Joseph (the guide) calls me insistently by pointing his light at me; curious I approached and, in total disbelief, I see this Coconut specimen hiding in a shell. My emotions are very strong but I calm down enough to think about how I should best capture that moment… I prepared a snoot and Joseph immediately understands and helps me. Thanks to him I was able to take this wonderful picture.
