I've just finished updating part of my website with photographs taken during the visits of Oscar, (Blue Icarus) and Kars to my area in July and August.

We had some days of exceptional clarity, sometimes 30m! It's fortunate that summer for us is the best time for visibility. The water is warm and inviting.

We had a great time all together and I used my Nikonos V with a 35 mm lens. Shots include surface images, goofy and fun images, no limits practice, some spearfishing shots and some manipulated images.


The usual beautiful pictures from you Adrian. Brightened my day at the office thanks,
Erik Y.
Great pictures Adrian!

Pardon my ignorance, but where in spain is Costa Brava? on the mediterranean or the Atlantic?

Would a 3mm be enough if I come visit one day? :)
Thanks Eric,
You're in an office? What's wrong with you? :D One day I hope to have pictures of you over here!


It's on the Med side running from the south of France to the town of Blanes, just north of Barcelona. "Costa Brava" means "Angry Coast" In the winter we can get large 4-6 meter waves on the coast with easterly gales and the same further out at sea with the tramuntana, a very strong north wind that can blow for a month on end when it wants to.

This makes for lousy visibility in the winter but not all the time. Generally fall is pretty peaceful and some mornings the sea is like a mirror, one can generally swim without a suit until the middle of october.

After that I'd recommend a 5 mm. If you don't have one I have a couple of old extra suits.

So wait - Adrian, are you saying there is dynamite windsurfing in the winter ?
This is a very big windsurfing area, San Pera Pescador is a stop on the world championship tour, in the middle of the bay and it's just 4 km from here. Probably the next best place after Tarifa.

Thanks Dimitri,

I'll be getting another roll from the developers next tuesday, and if there's anything worth looking at I'll post a note here.
