Photo Of The Day – Double Breach

Title: Double Breach


Location: Off of Admiralty Island, Alaska, USA, North America

Description: We got lucky. But it seems to happen often when in Alaska.

This shot of two breaching whales, one already making a huge splash and the other just moments away from landing, was taken aboard the UnCruise Adventures Safari Endeavour where I was teaching photography for eight days. I’ll be teaching with them again in Mexico this winter. Come join us (Feb 13, 2016)!

For a while I am going to ask for your assistance in helping those in Nepal rebuild their lives. Average citizens don’t have insurance and I would not trust the inept and corrupt government to help where it is needed most.

I am going to focus on two non-profits I know have ties in the country (read: employees with families who understand where funds can help the most) for my pleas for assistance.

The first is Planeterra, a non-profit run by G Adventures. The second is the Paldorje Sherpa Foundation run by Sherpa Adventure Gear. Both of these charities are run by their parent company, who covers all their overhead so that 100% of donations go to those in need. Both of these companies do the right thing and care for the people of Nepal greatly. Both have funds set up specifically to help quake victims.

Please consider donating today.
