Happiness is Twilight
My favorite time of day has always been evening twilight. Photographers call it the blue hour. I call it the watery time, when the sky becomes like a darkening pond overhead. It takes on a quality and color that makes me want to cry from the beauty of it and that I can almost drink in and taste.
This photo was taken in June 2015 at Golden Gardens and is posted for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge with the theme of happy.
Tracking Orca Health
I’ve never been lucky enough to see an orca in the wild. But I’m still dazzled and thrilled just knowing that such magnificent creatures are out there, swimming freely in our Salish Sea. To me they symbolic of our little part of the world, a feeling enhanced by growing up around the art of the Coastal Salish people, which often incorporates them.
A joint research project between the Vancouver Aquarium and NOAA Fisheries is studying the Northern and Southern Resident Populations to track the health of our orcas, using drones to capture high quality images. Drones can take photos from much closer than helicopters or planes without disturbing the animals.
