The Breach   Leave a comment

Humpback Whales swim 3,000 miles from their winter waters near Hawaii and Mexico to spend the summer feeding in the rich ocean waters off the Alaska coast. All the added blubber doesn’t seem to hurt their leaping ability. Photo of a breach in Kenai Fjords National Park by Dragana Connaughton.

The Fire In Horsetail Fall   Leave a comment

 

 

Every February a rare phenomenon makes Horsetail Fall in California’s Yosemite National Park glow like fire. The sun has to hit the water just right, clouds can’t get in the way, and the photographer’s position must be in the right place at the right time. Photo taken Saturday, 2/11/17 by Ray Lee. Tweeted by the US Department of the Interior 2/13/17.
