Some people like a bit more adventure in their holidays, including regular entrant and previous prize winner in out November 2008 competition, Malcolm Tabberer of Maker, Cornwall. With an alternate title of "Skye Diving", Malcolm explains that this shot was "taken after a dive in waters off north west Skye, Scotland with a Panasonic TZ3 with marine housing - and yes, it was cold!"
Another adventurous holiday photographer is Michael Coupar of Preston, Lancashire. He took this unusual and arresting photo of a "traffic jam" in the arctic north of Sweden while out for a ride on a snowmobile. Unfortunately Michael hasn't let us know what camera he used to take this shot, but it demonstrates that despite all the warnings, most digital cameras are absolutely fine in cold weather.
Exactly the opposite kind of adventure has attracted Michael Glavanis of Cambridge, England, a four-wheel-drive trek through the desert. "This was taken during a desert safari from a highpoint in the white/black desert in Egypt. The photo was taken using a Nikon D80 and 18-200mm VR lens."
