Vancouver Island is renowned for its variety of natural diving spots. You can choose to dive by the cliffs in Nanaimo or go north towards Comox. Or south all the way down to Victoria/Sydney area.
Over the years the Artifical Reef Society of British Columbia has introduced artificial reefs into the waters. They are created by sinking old ships and aircraft. Here's the link to see the reefs and the sinking of ships. Very interesting. YouTube has quite a few videos of ships being sunk.
I don't ever (never ever) plan to dive into the ocean to see these reefs myself but I can imagine how rusty everything becomes from the salty waters. This is my ode to the ships, the divers and to those who create artificial reefs.
Thank you Katrin for this Drawing Challenge. Go to Katrin's wonderful blog. You'll see what the other artists did for this week's challenge.
Have a great week everyone. I'll be in my studio painting, painting, painting for my upcoming shows in March.
Here's another link to diving in Nanaimo, BC.
