Carbon Neutral 4 Corals

In May 1998, while photographing in the Maldives, I had my first encounter with coral bleaching. Over the course of just a couple of days all the reef-building corals turned first pastel shades, then bright white. The 1998 event was the biggest bleaching event ever recorded and is estimated to have killed 90 of coral on 16 of the world's reefs (although about 40 of these are now recovering well). We now know that the primary cause of mass bleaching is increased sea temperature, usually no more...

More than Whites

Port Lincoln, South Australia by Aengus Moran Port Lincoln is a city of over 14,000 and not only the biggest fishing port of the state in South Australia, but the one of the biggest fishing port in all of Australia. In particular, it is known for Tuna and where there's Tuna, there's bigger fish that eat Tuna, and that's why I went to Port Lincoln, to dive with the Great White Shark. There are two licensed operators conducting cage diving in the area, most frequently at the Neptune Islands,...

Le Morne Mountain Has got a great history behind it. When slavery was abolished, the slaves escaped and were hiding on this mountain. When the Whites were climbing behind them to announce them they were free, they were so scared to get caught again, that they jumped the high cliffs and died. Since Cousteau and The big blue appeared on our screen, an irresistible urge of discovery started to touch many people around the world to discover for themselves life under the ocean. They dreamt about...

If Mohamed lived in Sunderland his beautiful daughter Hodan would still be alive. Unfortunately for him, he doesn't. Mohamed lives in Somaliland, where he had to bring her home to die of a broken leg because he couldn't afford to keep her in hospital.

The alternative was teleconverter-fisheye. Sometimes coming up with new ideas requires a little unhinged thinking. Sometimes imagination is more important than knowledge. But most of the time it isn't. I always enjoy trying new ideas, techniques and kit in an effort to produce different types of underwater photos But I'd be the first to admit that success is like gold dust. Luckily, it is only the ones that work out that I write about in UWP. This article is...
