    I live in the right place, the Cayman Islands. Also I organise a group of divers so I get to pick where and when

    Definitely didn't do enough diving this year. Too many south coast trips called off, truncated or blown out after leaving harbour.
    Two lake pootles, nine warm water and and nine cold water.:drowning:

    About 100 for me this year, about average. It did include a Red Sea liveaboard last month & my advanced Trimix in Malta earlier on this year. Normally 1 weekends sea diving a month, usually Plymouth, Swanage or Porthkerrus. Professional teaching has been slow but I've been deployed a lot with work. Hopefully it'll be better next year.

    Hmmm, are you coming to the NDAC bash in Jan? Sounds like you'll need a check dive before 'Muff... ;)

    2014 was a great year for me from a diving viewpoint. Started off with the Cayman Islands in January, a trip that included first the a liveaboard cruise on the MV Cayman Aggressor followed by 4 more days of diving based at Little Cayman Beach Resort. Then in June I went to Bali, diving first in Tulamben, then Nusa Penida and finally a 9-day liveaboard cruise to Komodo and surrounds on MV Mermaid I. Then in November I went on a 11-day, 37 dive trip to Raja Ampat on the MSV Seahorse.

    All 3 trips were great and I have posted the pictures in these forums.

    I managed just short of 200 dives in 2014. 84 of those were sea dives and 7 of those sea dives were mixed gas dives.

    Presumably the mix dives doesn't include the 3 experience dives on T1? x

    2014 was the year that I discovered Scuba so managed a grand total of erm..... 12

    Hopefully 2015 will bring a bit more than that and maybe one day I can find the time to do some of the remarkable numbers that I've seen posted in this thread (230??! Jeez I reckon I would need to be divorced to do that many)

    Well I am lucky that I can leave my house at 6:50am, get to the dive site by 7:00am, be in the water at 7:15am, hours dive and then be back home before SWMBO is even awake :)

    Thats how I racked up 230 dives but I did have to promise to spend Sunday afternoons doing family stuff :)

    Could really do with the video just to make us all explode with envy. Especially this weekend when some of us are meeting in a freezing quarry in Wales!

    It's probably the file size. If they're unprocessed, they'll probably be several megabytes in size. Can you put the pictures through a photo editor and export them with a maximum size of, say, 1000 pixels wide. This will reduce the actual file size to a hundred kilobytes or so. Then they'll upload.
