Hi all, I'm happy to say that I got the cover shot of this months issue of Diver. The shot is of Rajan the Elephant, and the story is about the dive with him and other diving around Andaman Island in India. I'm pretty stoked as this was my 3rd dive trip with my uw-housing. I bought my gear (Ikelite) in June 2009.

Kudos to you.

Well done Bjorn

Interesting pics and an interesting story by Hannah. (Hey! That's two of MY pics alongside yours on the cover!!! :notworthy: )

I buy my own photographic kit. Diving equipment manufacturers and diving services suppliers get even-handed treatment from me whether they choose to advertise in the publications I write for or not. All the equipment I get on loan is returned as soon as it is finished with. Did you know you can now get Diver Mag as an iPad/Android app?
