Always love a good spiral shot, @benthouard captures them magnificently! #repost - here is the photo that landed on the back cover of my book surface.
a very fascinating phenomenon that happen under a heavy breaking wave. the impact of the lip of the wave on the surface creates those unreal air bubble rings that evolve for a few seconds as the wave breaks and before it completely collapses
it’s pretty amazing !!!

Ocean art by @lindsayrapp 👌🏼 swipe to see the video - “summer wave” newest original painting & prints available on my website. 🌊 42” x 70” mixed media including oils from @gamblincolors on plexiglass 🎨 this wave, i actually painted in philly in excitement and anticipation for my move here to southern california. painting this piece, i was so filled with love, excitement, and joy as i was dreaming of my happy future in my dream location of laguna beach. this piece, first showed at my grand finale in philly, was the painting that @rldigiart chose to propose to me in front of. 💍💕 now after moving across the country, this painting is the centerpiece of my laguna beach art gallery, during the grand opening and currently still today. it has drawn people off the street more than anything i’ve ever painted before, people have remarked at the positive energy they feel from this piece. this wave is filled with so much love and happiness and has been there with me during all of my recent happiest pivotal experiences. this piece is incredibly special to me, and i hope you feel all of its love, excitement and joy that i poured into it.
as i painted this large piece, it gave me a panoramic experience while painting, as if i’m actually there in the water. this wave, i wanted to portray as a happy little wave by the shore, that invites the viewer to want to be there, to want to interact and play with this wave. this wave is about the joy, excitement, wonder and playfulness of the water. the way it moves, and how it inspires something carnal in humans and animals to want to jump in it, interact, play with it, and ride this beautiful living sparkling energy of moving water.

We just love people like @chrisburkard that venture beyond the boundaries of comfort and cliches to capture moments like this. just take a second and put yourself in his shoes or the surfers shoes (10mm booties 😬) and be thankful that you get to see moments like this without freezing your toosh off! @chrisburkard - i’ve photographed more days with blue skies than i can count. honestly they all start to blend together. but some of these sessions in the arctic have been permanently seared into my mind. you give so much more of yourself to explore & ride waves like this when it’s hovering below 0 degrees. maybe the sacrifice is what makes it so worthwhile. just to see what you are willing to give for a once in a lifetime experience.
Wooowwweeee!!! what a majestic creature!! video by @seajewlz 💙

dwarf minke whales make the most incredible sound. the first time people hear them, in an encounter, people can barely believe it’s the whales that are making the peculiar noises they hear. it’s often referred to as the “star wars” sound, as it’s sounds like it’s being produced mechanically or synthetically.
the noises are so strange that before studies were done, it was thought australian naval submarines might be making these strange sounds.
but really questions have to be asked why they make these crazy sounds? is it the males or females, who are making these sounds? there is so much we don’t know. it just makes this species of whale so special and fascinating.
dwarf minke whales are the smallest of the three species of minke whale and have very different markings to the antarctic and common minkes. they reach a maximum length of 7m’s and are found only in the southern hemisphere, where they spend summer in antarctic and sub-antarctic waters and migrate north in the winter months. although found off the coasts of south america and africa, the largest known numbers forms an aggregation inside the protection of the ribbon reefs of the great barrier reef, australia. here they seek out snorkelers and divers and are known to engage with humans for many hours at a time. several individual whales have been known to return, year after year. one whale has now spent 11 out of 12 seasons straight with us!
