#MotionoftheOcean
Hello everyone! We are here today with the winner announcement for Round 1 of the Motion of the Ocean Video Contest. Our first winner for this topic is Motionless by Andreas Gutierrez Fiskeseth. This is what VIP Judge Jeff Goodman of Scubaverse had to say: Andreas’ video kicked off with a beautiful and peaceful opening showing stunning images and some great camera moves. The healthy biodiversity of the dive site was captured well throughout the film. The accompanying music matched the images, building up to a crescendo that created a vibrant feel and then brought the audience back to the tranquility of the beginning which is exactly what diving is all about. Finally, the closing shot of a bearded scorpionfish was a fitting ending to an excellent film. Congratulations, Andreas, you are the winner of a brand new COSMIQ+ Dive Computer! Thanks for participating and we are excited to see more of your underwater videos in the future.

Diving off Con Son Island, in the Con Dao Archipelago, Vietnam. This is one of the lesser known destinations in Southeast Asia, and I hope we can keep it that way for a little while! :) Beautiful place with beautiful people. And beautiful diving! #motionoftheocean ... More

Pulau Weh, Indonesia. The diving and snorkeling was gorgeous—for the most part. Talk about "motion of the ocean": on one dive, we hit a combination of currents that created a washing machine effect, and all we could do was scramble along the ocean floor until we got out of it. But other than that, perfect! #motionoftheocean ... More

Southern Leyte Islands, Philippines. Some of the best diving I've done in 20 years! Turtles, moray eels, puffer fish, tiny shrimp, banded sea snakes, and yes... whale sharks! Absolutely stunning. I can't wait to go back! #motionoftheocean #leyte #macro #philippines #visayas ... More
