The diving I do now bears no resemblance to tropical diving. I favour twin tanks, a drysuit and long runtimes. Despite the cold and dark, the beauty of deep water fascinates me. The saturated colours and specialised animals are magnets for my camera, and the art of underwater photography is my prime reason to dive.
A big dive has a life of its own. From planning, through preparation to execution it is attention to detail that ensures a smooth dive with no dramas or unexpected problems. The challenge of safely completing a deep dive stimulates my mind and I get satisfaction from a dive done well.
Now I’m ready for my next challenge: Trimix. I’ll soon be doing a Trimix course and I plan to share my experience on this blog.
