On my second dive on the UB88 on August 3, I was with Drew Wilson. Our plan was for me to shine two really bright 15k lumen lights on the wreck as I took pictures and then Drew would swim off in the distance and take pictures without any artificial light. This would achieve two goals: (1) reduce or eliminate any backscatter from the flash or video light and (2) give an interesting perspective on the ship and the size.
I think they are, by far, the best wide angle photos I have seen of the UB88. If you want to see more of Drew’s photos or buy prints, then here is his photography site.
Kudos & thanks to Drew for allowing me to use the photos.
And this picture doesn’t have a diver in it for scale, but is just an incredible shot of the four torpedo tubes at the bow that you can see me illuminating in one of the pictures above.
