Photo Of The Day – The Island Shaped Like A Whale


Title: The Island Shaped Like A Whale

Location: Sea of Cortes, Mexico, North America

Description: In the wee hours of the morning, before the sun has breached the horizon, your eyes can play tricks on you. Such was the case with the small group of rocks known as Los Islotes. It didn’t help that navigation light atop the rocks looked like a small water spout.

Shot while teaching photography aboard the Uncruise Adventures Safari Endeavour.
