Drenaġġ Surfer jaqbad l-għajn

Every September London’s Natural History Museum (NHM) releases a selection of the finalists for its prestigious Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition, which this year has attracted almost 50,000 entries from professionals and amateurs across 92 countries.

One of the most eye-catching images this year is an underwater ritratt by Justin Hofman of the USA entitled Sewage Surfer, a finalist in the Wildlife ritratt-journalist Award: Single Image category.

Hofman has described how he watched in delight as the tiny estuary seahorse “almost hopped” from one bit of bouncing natural debris to the next near Sumbawa Island, Indonesia, bobbing around near the surface on a reef. 

Iżda hekk kif bdiet tidħol il-marea, il-burdata nbidlet. L-ilma kien fih aktar u aktar oġġetti deċiżament mhux naturali – prinċipalment biċċiet tal-plastik – u film ta’ ħama tad-drenaġġ kopriet il-wiċċ, kollha sluishing lejn ix-xatt. 

Iż-żiemel tal-baħar ħalla biċċa ħaxix tal-baħar u qabad biċċa twila ta’ plastik ċar. Hekk kif riħ mgħaġġel fil-wiċċ qabad, u għamel il-kundizzjonijiet aktar iebsa, ħa vantaġġ minn xi ħaġa li offriet ċattra aktar stabbli - cottonbud tal-plastik mimli ilma. 

Not having a macro lens for the shot ended up being lucky, both because of the strengthening current and because it meant that Hofman decided to frame the whole scene, sewage bits and all.

As he, the seahorse and the cottonbud spun through the ocean together, waves splashed into his snorkel. The next day, he fell ill. 

Indonesia has the world’s highest levels of marine biodiversity but is second only to China as a contributor to marine plastic debris – debris forecast to outweigh fish in the ocean by 2050.

Indonesia has pledged to reduce by 70% the amount of waste it discharges into the ocean.

Ir-rebbieħa ġenerali tal-kompetizzjoni jintgħażlu fuq il-bażi tal-kreattività, l-oriġinalità u l-eċċellenza teknika, u jissemmew fis-17 ta’ Ottubru.

Il-wirja tiftaħ fil-mużew fl-20 u tkompli sas-rebbiegħa li ġejja, u l-immaġini se jibdew ukoll tour fir-Renju Unit u internazzjonali. 

Il-kompetizzjoni tal-2018 hija miftuħa għall-iskrizzjonijiet mit-23 ta’ Ottubru sal-14 ta’ Diċembru ta’ din is-sena – biex tibbukkja l-biljetti jew tidħol fil-konkors li jmiss, mur hawn
