Hold your breath

H/T Helen at The Seamonster, a great new blog about "ocean science, sports and discovery". This blog is an experiment in the communication of the perilous ecological condition of the oceans via getting people excited about their beauty and wonder. This video does it for me. Filmed entirely on breath (no underwater breathing apparatus for either subject or camerawoman) at the deepest blue hole in the world (Dean's Blue Hole, 202m), the "story" is fiction (in that no one has got to the bottom while "freediving"; the current record is 100m) but it is still an amazing little film.
