Discovery - Red Sea wrecks

by Martyn Guess

Martyn Guess All but one of the photographs in my portfolio were shot last year on a Martin Edge trip to the Red Sea. We had the opportunity of diving extensively on  three classic wrecks, The Carnatic, Ghiannis D and Chrisoula K - basically one day for each which meant that we could photograph the same wreck in different light. Perhaps most importantly we knew from our first dive on each wreck what we wanted to photograph next and could plan how to take the shots for each subsequent dive. There is something about wreck diving, the mystique, the history, the sadness - for me wrecks symbolise the under water world.
