Those of you that follow our work will know that we love to spend a little bit of time above water on our travels abroad, and especially love to visit vineyards and sample the wines that benefit from being close to the coast. So we were delighted to discover that we had been invited to visit Gozo, and that there was a local tasting available for us to attend. We had two days of diving on our short visit, and a day to absorb the local culture above the water. We dived with Calypso Diving Centre , visiting caves, reefs and wrecks doing both boat and shore dives. The vineyard we visited was the Tal-Massar Winery which offers a series of lovingly made wines.

We are off to Cornwall for some scuba festivities at the Cornwall Scubafest over the bank holiday weekend. Whilst it is a long drive from Manchester, it is always a good event. We have our fingers firmly crossed for good weather, so that we can make the most of our long weekend. So what's the plan?

Caroline recently took two awards at the NUPG / GNDS Print Awards. The winners were selected by the general public at this diving event held in Manchester, along with overall winners being selected by sponsors. The above shot of a Grey Seal from the Farne Islands won the British & Irish Wide Angle category. The Cape Fur Seal clinging onto a kelp frond while looking straight into the camera won the Overall Overseas title. Why? Well the public love cute, and seals and sea lions have that in spades. But, they also look right at the camera, giving the viewer of the image the feeling they are engaging with the photo and they can really imagine being there in that moment. This is what makes these images so popular.

I think it is fair to say that we love our wide angle, big animal photography best. So it is with more than a little excitement that we start to get ready for our group trip to the Revillagigedo Islands that lie some 600km off the Mexican coastline, out in the blue expanse of the Pacific Ocean. It is one of the most prolific pelagic encounter destinations, but you have to have a slice of luck on your side. Both the weather and the marine life can be unpredictable!

Any doubts we had about taking our precious iPhone underwater we soon swept aside when we tried out the LenzO housing. It is tough, well made, has good closing mechanisms with a reassuring clunk as the port and back secure into place. You do not need a special app to get the camera to work. It has excellent optics and the controls mean that you can access both the different modes of the camera (slo-mo, panoramic, video etc) and the exposure controls with ease. You can review your images with the swipe feature, as well as read an iBook on your safety stop. It has a special "selfie" lens too! 

Best bit? You can post your images and video onto social media just minutes after getting out of your wetsuit (or drysuit). For more about this, have a look at our review on Scubaverse by clicking here .

We have not been diving in Sharm el Sheikh for many years now. But we were invited to come and write about the diving here, and to, hopefully, re-ignite the passion for this iconic location for British divers who have been staying away. We jumped at the chance. Whilst there are still no direct flights from the UK, we were surprised to see how many routes the loyal repeat customers have found to get here. Camel Dive Club are hosting us, and their team are happy to help find suitable routes from all the major UK airports.
