Sunday Nature Stills – 01/31/2016

Right now I’m listening to 35 mph wind blowing snow and ice against the side of our house.  As I was looking at photographs tonight, I was thinking of warmer milder places…

I took this photograph one evening on the north side of Herron Island in the Great Barrier Reef.  It is a beautiful little island right on the edge of the tropic of Capricorn.  I just checked, and right now it is 86° F and sunny there.

I always enjoy watching the sea otters along the central California coast.  I’m impressed that they are completely at home in crashing waves along the rocky coast. They are sometimes hard to photograph because they move fast and only surface for a short time, but every once and a while, they get curious and will come close to check me out when I am photographing seascapes.  They are always a nice surprise to find along the coast.
