Hello Down There !

Hi Everyone,

I was along at our Scottish Dolphin Centre at Spey Bay recently for the press launch of the amazing new “Dry Dive” exhibition in the Ice House next to the Centre itself. The Ice House is the funny looking “three humped” building on the grassy mound in the aerial picture below – taken from my new quad-copter that has a camera built into it.

The new exhibition uses two of the big, vaulted rooms of this wonderful old building and projects multiple video films onto big screens at the same time, some of the video is stuff that I have taken around the area. In the dark of the rooms – when the videos are playing with the amazing sound track it transports you right “into” the environment and it’s even more amazing when the underwater footage starts to play…you really feel as though you are scuba diving while standing on dry land. Please come and visit us at the WDC Scottish Dolphin Centre over the season and the Dry Dive exhibition is not to be missed !

Best Wishes,

Charlie.
