Divers & wrecks

Seattle is a wreck  located just outside of Kristiansand. Starting at about 20 meters and running a lot deeper it is suitable both for recreational as well as technical diving. It is easy to end up on a deco dive with a wreck as fine as this one. This was shot with my favourite wideangle lens for underwater use, Tokina 10-17mm fisheye. Natural light at f4.5, 1/40, 10mm, ISO 400.
This picture is taken during the competition dives in the Norwegian underwater photography championship 2008. This one earned a 2nd place in it's category. It is taken just outside Stokmarknes with the Tokina 10-17mm. The fantastic people in the local diving club did a fantastic job making this championship a memory for life. The model here is as usual David Øhre.

David is again studying the underwater life. This time it is one of my favourite fish. The picture was taken during the Norwegian underwater photography championship 2006 in Kristiansund. We were actually trying to take a picture of a totally different fish that didn't cooperate. This wrasse came and swam between David and the camera and wouldn't leave. The picture was taken with my Sigma 10-20mm  at 16 mm f5.3 1/60th of a second on my D70.
During the ascension of a dive in Narvik, I took this picture. At the top of the line you can see our dive boat waiting for us after a wreck dive. The pictures is taken north of the arctic circle in the beginning of December 2005 so there is no light. This was at 13 meters depth at 10mm f4, 1/10th of a second and ISO 800 on my D70.

Taking pictures of hunting under water is quite a thrill. These guys have a strong bite and did not enjoy the treatment he received. We did experience that he tasted well. It is perfectly ok to hunt in Norway.  This was actually taken with the kit lens 18-70 from Nikon with a diopther on it.
My wife Tina is having a look at this anemone. They are usually found at depths of 30-40 meters and deeper. This one was found just outside of Oslo. They sting like jellyfish if you touch them, and sometimes shelter shrimps. Taken at 10mm f6.3, 1/60 and my D70 at ISO 200.   
This is Ferndale. A wreck that can be found in Sognefjorden on the west coast of Norway. Next to it there is another wreck called Parat. When the visibility is good you are in for a fantastic dive, but it is tempting to go deeeeeeep. This was actually edited in a program called GIMP. Just to test something new and free. Taken with the Sigma 10-20mm at 10mm f4 and 1/15 th of a second.
This was a fantastic wall dive done just outside Kristiansand, Norway with Carlo at One Ocean. David was my patient model working hard to satisfy my wishes. This is from May 2007.  The lens was the Tokina 10-17mm at 10mm f6.3 1/40.
