‘An Bollenessor’ means ‘the rock pool hunter’ in the Cornish language. In this blog, I will post about marine life in Cornwall: rock pooling, beach combing, snorkeling, diving, ‘pontooning‘, keeping local organisms in my aquarium but more and more about underwater photography (mainly seaweeds). I try to take care in identifying species using resources such as aphotomarine (see the links page for a list of useful sites and books) but I will be wrong in some cases. If you have specific interests, you can click on one of the Categories at the bottom of the home page. These are pretty self explanatory, e.g. diving, rock pooling, seaweeds, fish or aquarium update. For more specific topics of interest click the Tags under the blog post header. Most photo’s above water are taken with my iPhone 4S (with an olloclip lens for macro pics), older underwater photo’s are taken with Canon Powershot D30, Panasonic Lumix or Canon G16 compact cameras; newer underwater photo’s with an Olympus OMD5 mark2 mirrorless camera. Btw, I work at the University of Exeter in Cornwall and have a work blog too.
