Weekly Photo Challenge: Let There Be Light!

November here in the north is mainly, grey, rainy, dull, dark so the topic Let there be light is on the top of everyone’s minds. We had this beautiful light this morning…these photos are taken at 10:30 and it looks like its ready to go down again…so you can understand the joy of seeing this light.

But also one uses these sources light to have a warm atmosphere during this season of darkness

Weekly Photo Challenge: Unexpected

We saw this wonderful sight at the coast of Sri Lanka. One rarely gets to see a blue whale so close. We were told to be quiet  and having listened to the captains orders;  the whale came to check out our boat.  It swam around and under our boat, so we were able to see it up and close –  It was impressive!

It is found near large bodies of open water with an abundant food supply and old-growth trees for nesting.

The Bald Eagle is an opportunistic feeder which subsists mainly on fish, which it swoops down and snatches from the water with its talons. It builds the largest nest of any North American bird and the largest tree nests ever recorded for any animal species,  Sexual maturity is attained at the age of four to five years.

Bald Eagles are not actually bald; the name derives from an older meaning of “white-headed”. The adult is mainly brown with a white head and tail. The sexes are identical in plumage, but females are larger than males. The beak is large and hooked. The plumage of the immature is brown.

The Tall Ships Races
