Congrats, JP!

So you have now won this and an award at Antibes with my lens. That is fantastic.

And to think I scratched the front element of my 10.5mm when I first got it back in 2003. That must be the secret.

I spoke to the guys at the BBC this morning. I have the choice for the assignment. Obviously, I want to do my bit to promote the underwater world.

I wonder what exotic destination to choose ! Great whites in Guadalupe ? Pygmies in Lembeh ? Edible crabs on the South coast of Britain ? hmmm... Maybe not the edible crabs. B)

You could choose the West Coast of British Columbia, Canada. Cousteau said it was the best in the world. I go every year because it is that good. IMAX was there this year.

Then you could buy the beer. ;)

Cousteau said everywhere was the best world at some point or other, Todd! But BC would be very cool. I agree.

JP, definitely do something that is big and exciting as it needs to appeal to average punter on the BBC website. But you also want something reliable - otherwise it will become pretty stressful if the critters aren't turning up.

I'll caht more when I see you this evening.

Damn that Cousteau. I did not know that. :lol:

But, as you said BC would have some impact. The coloUr rocks and big critters...well Humpbacks, Orcas with a few Sea Lions and Seals. Giant Pacific Octopus but, they skunked us this year. One year we got sick of them there were so many.

Have fun with it! :D

I think Yap is out of bounds for my wallet, unfortunately :D But I'd love to see the trophy ! And I need to bring you that copy of Diver mag, which I promised you such a long time ago.

Todd, when you say BC would be very cool, how many layers underneath the drysuit are you talking about ? :lol: I'd love to have an orca picture on my hard disk !

Awe only one layer. 9C or 48F water temp.

Heck just for fun I told my zipper to leak each dive. Just enough to put a chill on the end of the dive. :lol:

If you want warm water...you should join Alex for Bahamian Tiger sharks and dolphins. I think he is doing that this year.
