… to when we were living on the sea in Egypt and shooting sharks for fun. Incredible times. Here’s my gorgeous wife Natalia filming an Oceanic White Tip.
Battling through the fierce winds - the DJI Mavic Pro 2 held it’s own and still managed to turn out some buttery smooth footage. Pretty incredible for a Drone that fits in your coat pocket!
Am still reveling in the memory of this incredible location. Here's a quick video I pieced together with some of the aerial footage compiled on the trip. Enjoy!
Seems like a lifetime ago now - scuba diving in the crystal clear waters of the Red Sea. This time of the year the Oceanic White Tip sharks come up to visit. The water currents and the temperature are just right for these incredible creatures to bask off the back of Elphinstone Reef off the coast of the southern Red Sea. My now wife Natalia took these fab shots of me whilst I was filming the sharks. Warm waters meant no wetsuits and basically no protection whatsoever! Was one of the most epic dives of my life!
What an absolute beauty day down at "Another Place" in Crosby Liverpool. I had the Drone (new toy) up recording a little bit of video. It's been a while since I recorded any video. About 12 years in fact! But was nice to put together a quick clip to showcase the amazing "iron men" of Crosby beach. Using the Drone takes a bit of practice as controlling the aircraft and the video camera simultaneously takes some concentration. But we got there in the end! Enjoy!
1631 Liverpudlians came out in force to successfully break the Guinness World Record on Friday.
At 11.50am UK time today the people of Liverpool smashed a Guinness World Record and in doing so celebrated the 50th anniversary of the release of the Beatles debut single ‘Love Me Do’ in unique style.
Instigated by the city’s award-winning Beatles Story attraction with the support of Liverpool City and the Albert Dock, 1631 people sang their hearts out on a cold October morning smashing the previous record set by a group in Chicago, USA in October 2011
Their backdrop? The city’s iconic Liver Building of course.
The record – the most people singing ‘in a round’ – previous stood at 897. ‘A round’ is where two groups sing exactly the same melody with each group beginning at different times so that different parts of the melody coincide in the different voices.
Those contributing to smash the Guinness World Record included 1400 local choir members, Liverpudlians, international tourists, local schools, lunching office workers, shoppers and a legion of Beatles fans who had travelled from as far away as Brazil, Argentina, Norway and even Australia. There was even a couple celebrating their 50th anniversary attending who’d had ‘Love Me Do’ as their first wedding dance!
