Competition day 3, 4 and static

20th June 2014

The water’s so clear here in Crete that there’s barely a point for me as a photographer to go deep -you can get overview shots at 10 meters, like this one of Monika, who did a national record Free Immersion for Poland

monika-3813so i’d almost forgotten what a bottom plate looks like, but lucky for me a lot of divers decided to do no fin dives the last few days, so i got re-acquainted with it

bottomplate-3924and i was fortunate enough to capture a perfect tag grab

george bw-4144Of course there was also silliness, perhaps most from Judge Jakob

jakob-4015and this comp wouldn’t be complete without Do doing something inexplicable -i think here she’s doing reiki on the comp line

do-2749Tim might have done something perfect

tim-4290But the highlight for me was that after 2 years of accidents, nerves, bad timing and worse luck, my girl Georgina finally managed to break her own record static today:

Second day of the 7th mediterranean Freediving world cup

16th June 2014

Beautiful dives again today -and a turtle! Only caught that one on video -poor battery on the main camera died of sheer exhaustion.

Screen Shot 2014-06-16 at 18.10.52Other prizes, almost as good, went to Yaron for best post-dive expression

yaron-3123Most inexplicable body position is a toss-up between Kimmo

kimmo-2812and Do

do-2808Coolest mono fin went to Aristididididis

aristidis-2921Best blue went to the sea

blue-2950But the real comp today was for best Jesus. I’ve narrowed it down to 3, so it’s up to you to decide. There was Chris:

First day of the 7th mediterranean Freediving world cup

15th June 2014

I’m a firm believer in lots of prizes at competitions, so here are the ones from the first day. Best nerves before the dive went to cool newbie Monika, who then also won most relieved smile after her dive:

Quikest dive while blocking yourself with your palms went to Yaron:

Best Jesus went to Aurora:

Aris got the ‘managed to look bigger than the boat’ prize:

Nicholas had the most definite ‘those are my fins’ award:

But the picture of the day goes to Chris:
