Form and function of underwater life

1st December 2007

Dr Thomas Bligh, who lives beside the Helford River, has enjoyed an illustrious career in precision engineering and craftmanship, explosives research, energy conversion, robotic systems, underwater diving equipment, catamaran design and more recently until his retirement, Fellow and tutor at Caius College, Cambridge.

During a lifetime of sailing, with a passion for specialised underwater photography around the world and with the help of his wife, Nigel, he has amassed a stunning collection of exquisite pictures of multi-coloured fish, coral reefs and colourful nudibranchs or sea slugs of these warmer seas.

An appreciative audience was fascinated by his pictures and his understanding of these species and habitats.
