1How did you get started in underwater photography?
2Tell us about your image which was a runner-up in the British Waters Macro category of the Underwater Photographer of the Year 2019.
This picture of a sea hare was taken just before the major restoration works commenced on Swanage Pier. The subject was crawling along a broken pier leg, and was perfectly positioned for me to take a picture. These creatures are often mistaken for nudibranchs, but are a different group of sea slugs. The colour of the sea hare tends to adhere closely to the colour of the weed on which it feeds. It’s my quest to promote the beautiful sea life we have here in the UK.
