In Search Of Whale Sharks, Sogod Bay, Philippines

We have been seeing whale sharks here in the Philippines off Southern Leyte Island.  Photographing them has been a challenge due to the fact you must use a snorkel and shoot with available light only.  We try again tomorrow.  In the meantime, here are a few images from the other day...

Oowatanite! - April Wine at the Red Robinson Show Theatre

November 12, 2010: One of Canada’s legendary classic rock bands of all time played to a soldout audience  tonight at the Red Robinson Show Theatre in Port Coquitlam, BC. I first saw April Wine from in front of the stage at the Ottawa Civic Centre in 1973 when they headlined a bill with bands Mainline, King Biscuit boy and Africa.  Even after all these years , they can still rock the room!

Using Shark Imagery To Promote Shark Conservation

Renowned marine artists Wyland & Guy Harvey recently spent time in the Bahamas to document the beauty of sharks in an effort to help raise awareness about the plight these magnificent predators face, with the strong prospect of a commercial shark-finning operation being introduced there. Also involved is Jim Abernathy, a legendary shark diving tour operator. George Schellenger, of Status Productions put it all on film! Gentleman, we both applaud and support your efforts!

Here's a sneak peek of the film project they are developing:
