Pushing the limits
If you are interested in diving, human physiology, or simply the limits of what is possibl;e then you may enjoy this CNN photo essay that is currently highlighted on their homepage, documenting a free diving competition off the Cayman Islands: One deep breath: Pushing the limits of freediving Off the coast of the Cayman Islands, photographer Logan Mock-Bunting
takes a deep breath and descends into the endless blue. He has been
freediving for years, swimming long distances underwater without an air
tank. But this time was different. He was there to cover Performance Freediving International’s Deja Blue III,
an annual competition that ended Thursday. He would witness iron-lung
athletes exploit their bodies to break breath-holding records.
