Deep Dive

Species: Humpback Whale | Location: Orne Harbor, Antarctica

We were zodiac cruising in Orne Harbor, looking for whales. We were rewarded with numerous Humpback whales. They were all around, and many came very close and were diving under the zodiacs. This is one of over 60 different whales that I saw on this trip. I submit my pictures to HappyWhale.com, so that they can be logged into the database. On this trip, over 50 of the whales that I submitted were new to the database and to science, which made all of the editing time worth the effort.

About The Photographer

Cropped antarctica marian yarlour islands

I am a retired product management and development professional who now spends most of my time traveling the world taking photographs. I started taking pictures when I was six and continued my interest in photography in my adult life. I have won international photographic competitions, including 3 best-in-the-world nature print awards in the Kodak International Salon. I have also won an award in the Ocean Conservancy 2016 contest. Two of my images were featured in the 2018 Ocean Conservancy calendar and three images are in the 2019 calendar. My images have also been published in National Wildlife magazine, National Gardening magazine, Florida Wildlife magazine and on the World Wildlife Fund web site. I have exhibited in numerous juried art shows and galleries. When home, I give presentations to community groups about the countries and communities I’ve visited, and talk about the environmental changes I have captured in my photography.
