So this was August 10th-13th 2018 - we went scuba diving for the first time in the North Sea off the NE English / SE Scottish coastlines. We had the good fortune to be able to get this still from one of our videos with the gopro photo/still option. 18m down in the cold waters was a lot of fun. Water technically as we were fully surrounded by it.
(see below, not entirely sure which vid it was from as we ended up with at least 5 videos)
Grand Canyon mile 62. Little Colorado River, AZ. Jan 6, 2019
Some more info about the picture/location:
The LCR is a tributary to the Colorado River in that runs through the Grand Canyon. We got lucky and timed it after the first snowstorm of the year. Winter 2018 was one of the driest in Grand Canyon history, and so being the morning after the snowstorm with the temperature staying low, we got the snow covered canyon walls with the icy blue to green transition of the water. Normally the little Colorado river is brown with the silty water that feeds the Colorado River needed minerals and gives it the iconic brown color. This morning was day 4 of 19 down the 227 miles from Lee's Ferry to Diamond Creek. We had cold temps (~5°F first night) but had a trip of a lifetime. The picture itself is a 50MP composite made of 30 images. Taken on a Nikon D600 with a 18-35mm D lens.
This is the Noordzeekanaal (shipping canal from Amsterdam to the North Sea) with the complex of locks and the sea in the distance.
