Sadly we are still lingering in Lockdown Land however let’s not fret because it’s time for the next theme release of our Photos for Fills competition!
This month’s theme takes a more historical turn as we want to see your “Shipwreck” photos. One of the top diver favourites, wreck diving gives us a unique opportunity to enjoy some staggeringly dramatic structures that few others get to see. Their combination of historical value and sheer quantity of marine life make them a firm favourite of the shop’s staff.
Feel free to leave a wee message about your photograph, especially if there was a special reason you took the photo and what the person(s) in the photo means to you and make sure to tag the charterer/skipper who brought you out to the wreck too. Bonus points if your photos come from any of the local wrecks in the Clyde .
Fitting with this month’s theme, and in addition to the fills, Eastwood Divers have kindly donated us one of their Jacques Cousteau, diving’s most famous explorer, inspired beanies which will be awarded to the 1st prize winner. So not only will you have plenty of gas to dive with but you will look fabulous on the shore too!
