The next meeting takes place on Wednesday 18th July 2007 at 7.30 for 8.00 p.m. in The Holland Club, Imperial College, South Kensington, London SW7. Directions.

Splash-in review by JP Trenque - who was responsible for putting together the spectacular presentation of all of the Splash-In images entered for projection in Plymouth on 7 July!

Focus On: Temperate green waters.

Eligible images should have been taken in northern temperate waters such as the UK, Ireland, Norway, Canada, etc, or in the southern hemisphere, New Zealand.  In other words, cold water photography, where the water is normally green. The Canaries, Med and northern Red Sea, which are technically "temperate", are not included.  If in doubt, ask!  See Rules at Focus On and online entry form

Main Event: In the name of science - a research trip to the Coral Sea by Pedro Vieyra

Pedro, a longstanding BSoUP member and a member of the Committee, took up diving in 1986 because of his interest in marine life.  After a few years of diving North Sea wrecks from North Norfolk, he became interested in underwater photography while diving off the islands and highlands of west and northern Scotland and club trips to the Red Sea and south-east Asia, and joined BSoUP to hone his skills.

Since then, Pedro has travelled the world, including expeditions to the southern Red Sea, Indonesia, Canada and French Polynesia photographing sharks and whales. He has been big shark diving in the Bahamas and Guadeloupe, diving with Orcas in Norway and Humpback whales in Turks and Caicos. He has had competitive success at the Seychelles Underwater Film and Image Festival (SUBIOS), in the BSAC Travel Club competition (winning this in 2004), 'Beneath the Sea 2006' held in New York and the 'British Underwater Image Festival' 2006.

In November 2005 he joined a research trip to the Coral Sea northeast of Australia helping to provide scientists with valuable data as well as having the opportunity to dive on virgin reefs teeming with fish.  Pedro will be telling us about that trip and showing us some of his shots from this remote and beautiful area.
