Recently I found out I was awarded third place in the International photography awards nature category “underwater” for my ever so different photograph I named “liquid abstract” It’s a photograph of the waves rolling above me whilst I swim in the ocean just before sunrise giving me unique colours. Here is the press release and a little bit about the competition.

Jon Wright was Awarded: 3rd place in Nature - Underwater category for the winning entry "Liquid abstract"
