What Lies Beneath

Providing a glimpse into what is normally out of sight the Underwater Photography Awards 2018 have been announced with some stunning results. Originally ran in 1965 it was brought back in 2014 and since then has gone from strength to strength with this year’s winning entry entitled ‘Cycle War’.

Underwater Photographer of the Year competition celebrates photography beneath the surface of the ocean, lakes and even swimming pools.
A panel of expert judges rummaged through 5,000 entries to crown the international victors spanning 11 photography categories.
Taking home the grand prize was German photographer Tobias Friedrich for his remarkable ‘Cycle War’ snap (which you can see above) portraying an underwater wreckage of World War II motorcycles, supply trucks, and armies of soldierfish swarming the entire frame of the photo.

Grant Thomas won the title of British Underwater Photographer of the Year for his image of swans, titled 'Love Birds' (which you can see below), which was taken on Scotland's Loch Lomond.
