Grand Canyon

I have been working on adding new photographs to my shop over the past two weeks, and the work is finally completed. I have added eight photographs to my Zazzle store, Developing Nature, that I took when we visited the southern rim of the Grand Canyon last Summer. The images were added to paper products and a few office supplies. You can visit this new store section to view all the products by clicking here.

The Bird that Woke the Whales

One morning during our 2018 Summer road trip, we took a whale watching trip. The morning air was filled of fog. There were some birds about. And then a pair of sleeping whales were spotted. As a good samaritan, as if the bird knew we were out there to observe the large mammals, a young seagull poked at the larger whale and the two whales sunk below the surface. Not sure if we would ever see the pair, we patiently waited anyways. But we did not have to wait for long. Like a torpedo, the little calf, with great force came splashing up out of the water towards the boat. Followed by mother, with a more graceful approach.

I have added three of my favorite images from this event to my Society6 shop. Here you can purchase the art prints, or the images on items for your home or office. I did add texture to the photographs. I think that the smoothness of the whale skin and the sleekness of the bird wings becomes more of a focal point among the fog and water.
