Duke of York Islands

Whilst Rodney and Mike were styling up in the heli over Rabaul, I was left behind to pick up the dregs in this very shabby location! Not a bad consolation prize in my book!

The Duke of York Islands are home to a number of second world war wrecks including a couple of tanks that are only in about 10m of water. Apparently the Japanese push them off a barge before they left PNG. There are also some world war 2 prison tunnels not far from this location.

  1. Gotta love those blue, greens and whites … I think you had the best deal Mark … I'd much rather see an image I am immersed in rather than looking down on from a 1000 or more feet. For me I am standing right in the water on this one so I love it …

  2. Nice one Marky. My fav from you so far I recon. Hey Neil it looked bloody good from 1000ft and 20ft too. You will see soon enough. Watch this space.

    1. Thanks Bo and yes indeed I know if I get the big tick from you that I have done good!

      The canoe man does have a 3d component to it eh!

      Mike, Looks like you have a supporter in Bo with the Duke of Yorks image eh!

      Thanks Mark for the comment.

    1. You're a hard one to please Merv!

      And yes it was good in the water on that day!

      29 degrees at 30m!



  3. the earth is round after all isnt it Mark, so one could be forgiven for a bent / crooked horizon…. Neal, im with Mike, it also looked pretty damn good from the heli… as he said, watch this space, his video is f*cking amazing and I have a nice little aerial shot as well… stay tuned
