You can never be sure what will turn up for competition – not at least until it’s time to vote. There were a lot of good photos in the category but I took home the prize!
The Explorer’s framed my photo on a gloss print and added a little plaque at the bottom that says “Best Macro Photo 2011, Chris Kenst, Pacific Explorers Dive Club”. My first photography award!
