UPY 2017 British Waters Wide Angle - 3rd
'Under the old packhorse bridge' - Trevor Rees

For this photo I travelled to the Lake District for a dive in the River Duddon. An old stone packhorse bridge, called Birks Bridge, crosses over a small but deep gorge in the rock and there is just enough depth for a dive. For most of the year the water flow is too fast and frantic for taking pictures but I waited for a period of suitable dry weather to get the shot I wanted. My wife, who I am trying to entice back in to diving with some gentle sites, patiently modelled for me. It was fun working together to create this image.

Judge's comment: Alex Mustard: A classy image that shows something fresh for UK underwater photographers. Great team work by Mr and Mrs Rees, photographer and model.
