Festival de l’image sous-marine Antibes


Last week took place the 35th Festival de l’Image sous-marine in Antibes, southern France. This was a great opportunity to get away from the freezing temperatures around here in Luxembourg and to drive south 1000km.

I had also organised to meet an online buddy from Digidiver.net there, Thomas Vignaud aka Autopsea. It’s always interesting and funny to meet people you only know from the net for real. Concerning Thomas it was a great day to meet as he won the first prize in the photo competition as well as the prize of young photographer with his great turtle shot.

the winning shot!

I believe he needs some time to completely realise what happened to him. And this is only the beginning, I’m sure!

The day after you could even find his turtle on the front page of the newspapers.
