    Hi guys,

    I am a PADI DM and dive since 1985. Nowadays I dive at Norfolk (shore dives) in the summer and going to Stoney in the winter. Taking photos is what I like to do during my dives; also I enjoy servicing my own dive equipment.

    Cheers

    Welcome to the forum.

    Did you manage to get much diving done this year? How were the dives?

    G'day Frogman. Did you give in the Wash too up near you? Is there much in there to see and does it reach decent depths?

    Hi Frogman I gave up diving this year due to ears and age. I've dived a few times on the Chalk Reef and loved it. In my early days, it was a great training ground for buoyancy control in the early days with the maximum depth of 10 metres or so; one slip and you were on the surface! My wife has heritage in that area as her parents lived in Blakeney for 30+ years and her mother Norwich-born. Enjoy your diving

    Thank you guys,

    Yes, I managed to do a few dives this year, at Sheringham on the Chalk Reef, also on Rosalie (a shipwreck from the First World War) at Weybourne. All dives were really nice, and on the last one at Weybourne, I was surrounded and escorted through the dive by hundreds of bib fish. It was a great experience. However, decent dives on the Chalk Reef are possible from Weybourne down to Cromer, although I usually dive at Weybourne and haven’t dived in the Wash yet.

    Isn't it a wonderful experience to swim amongst the fish on a wreck. Unless you're taking photos when you want to tell them to clear off!

    Actually, my intention was to stay quiet on the seabed and try to capture, with my camera, their movement and abundance. Take a look at one of the photos I managed to take.

    Nice pic. Really like the way there's the feeling of motion but you can focus on the fish. Nice colours too.
