Photos of underwater oil rigs, etc.?

Post by Penopolypants » Wed Feb 20, 2019 10:00 am

Do any of you have a photo of structures like oil rigs or something similar, preferably crusted with life? I'm doing a presentation on offshore wind turbines and would like to show how much life can grow on them.

I can pay you in cupcakes. I make pretty good cupcakes! And you will of course receive credit.

I can, but I'd rather showcase our local talent if they're willing.

Check out this trip report. Many cool pics from some of our more notorious dive buds.

I'd be willing to bet they all have at least a couple of shots that would work.

Ahahah! You guys are awesome!

Alas, the moment has passed, but it's good to know I can count on you, regardless of your notoriety. :)
