Great Whites of Guadalupe Island

 

NATURAL CONNECTION

 

One hundred and fifty miles off the west coast of Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula, lies a small volcanic island that is a haven for great white sharks every fall  and winter.   With an abundance of California sea lions and elephant seals on the coasts of Guadalupe island, it attracts hundreds of great whites annually.  Guadalupe Island outperforms both South Africa and Australia with shark-seeing consistency and conditions. It is home to the best shark viewing, in beautiful, clear blue water with 100 – 150 foot visibility. 

The white line on the sides of a great white is similar to a fingerprint on a human, and can positively identify each shark, and there have been nearly 400 sharks identified in the bay.  

These images are full of vibrant detail, and printed large format, will make an unforgettable statement for those who visit your home or office.

Two ceremonies yesterday! The light of my life, the center of my universe,the air I breathe, I can think of several other descriptors for my daughters, but none come close to describe what I actually feel for them. It’s undescribable and there are no words that can articulate my love for them. So proud of Aubrey will be moving on to OU next year, and so proud of Aysa🦄❤️ pulling up her grades at the end of a hard year with a turbulent ending.

I guess I have to go halfway around the world to find a pygmy owl 😂 i’ve looked for these little guys in Yellowstone for the last eight years with no success, but we had a good encounter with this one in Patagonia!

Thanks to @aaronbaggenstos for this pic! I remember the first time we walked up to this vantage point, it was incredible. Breathtaking. I remember the same feeling when I saw Half Dome for the first time. What is something you saw for the first time that just blew your mind?

By the fifth day, we still hadn’t seen the top of the mountains, and hadn’t seen the entire Torres Del Paine. I was beginning to wonder if we would be able to see them at all. On the morning of the 6th day, I got up around 3:30 and it sounded like it was pretty calm outside, no rain. I went outside, looked up, and saw stars. I immediately told a few of the others and got ready to set out. By the time we got to the location, I could tell the clouds had set back in, but wasn’t sure what to expect on that first exposure. And then, I saw this,..

Blinka's cub peeks over her as they nap in the afternoon. Like most wild animals, Pumas are more active in the early morning and evening. During the middle of the day they rest up for the hunts. This cub is about 5-6 months old, so it will be awhile before it is ready to hunt for itself.

Eugenio found this little Austral Pygmy Owl while shooting some landscapes of dead trees against Torres Del Paine backdrop. It was funny to see everyone trying to shoot this owl with landscape lenses.

Luckily I had my Tamron 35-150mm f2-2.8, which is a new lens that I am loving! The 70-200 f2.8 has long been one of my favorite lenses, but the 35mm allows you to get some great wider shots without swaping lenses, and without sacrificing much on the long end.

“Pumaland” A puma known as Ginger, daughter of Rupestra, overlooks her domain atop a cliff in Patagonia. It was interesting to get to know these cats in a way during the week, and understand them more and their land. Probably the most beautiful land that I have ever seen, Patagonia is filled with gems everywhere you look.

One of Blinka’s cubs peers out from the black bush her mom was held up in after being hurt, we think in a hunting attempt. Blinka had a pretty good injury on her right front leg. She stayed in the black bush most of that day, with limited movement.

Cubs aren’t named until they are older and have proven that they will be around. This cub was about 5-6 months old.
