This is another article from today's paper. It is a scan and I did clean it up as best as possible. The picture is well worth sharing:

It looks great Con but unfortunately, due to sinus problems and surgery on them, I am unable to scuba dive (something to do with pressure or so I'm told). This is a shame because when I lived in South Africa I had the chance (signed up and all that) for a cheap PADI licence so that I could go diving with Great White Sharks (a long time ambition of mine). Underwater photography is something I would still like to try someday as is (astrophotography). :D

You know that sunset I posted the other day? Well I posted it on Weather Underground, an International weather site with photo galleries. I just got notification that it has been chosen for their World View Gallery, which is a pick of the top photos of the week. :o That really came as a surprise.
