UPY 2017 British Waters Macro - Commended
'Slug' - Marcus Blatchford

Having a 'Lust for Rust' I am normally seen with a dome port and fisheye lens. My prize from the previous UPY was a Nauticam SMC so with viz looking dreadful I decided to go macro. The SS Dakotian is in Milford Haven, a shallow inlet in South Wales . The wreck was covered in Jewell Anemones and Devonshire Cup Corals and I also saw maybe half a dozen of these slugs

Judge's comment: Alex Mustard: A classic nudibranch portrait of a species that is less commonly photographed. We're also thrilled to see a UPY Prize put to such good use.
