Another from my series of images of Pacific White-sided Dolphins, Lagenorhynchus obliquidens, swimming and traveling with us in British Columbia. The water was so clear you could see them under the surface, and this one was about to break the surface. In an instant before it did, I captured this image. You can see the pressure ridge of white above the dolphin. It looks sort of like a halo, ironically! I just loved this experience. I giggled a lot, delighted in their presence, as I photographed. I was reminded of Doris in Finding Nemo as she swam along happily saying “we’re swimming…”, hence the title of the blog post.
In Minnesota presently, staying with my friend Craig Blacklock, using a temporary ‘office’ in his gallery to get things done for me while traveling, all while surrounded by his beautiful landscape photography!
Wow! This is an absolutely fabulous shot! It reminds me of the paintings of George Sumner. It’s just beautiful!
Yes! You are correct – I didn’t even think about that but it does have that feeling he captured in his paintings…
This photo I absolutely love! What a spectacular feeling that must have given you. Incredible!!!
It was a wonderful experience, Ruth, indeed.
Thank you, Mike!
Wow this is nice. It reminds me of paintings by Wyland. Just beautiful!
