Video by @stephenwilkes This past Sunday, 2/18/18 was World Whale Day. While the day has passed I couldn’t let it go without sharing my loop view of the majestic Robson Bight. I had the opportunity to photograph a Day to Night at the Bight in 2016. I was enchanted with the beauty of the Bight which is a sanctuary for Orca Whales. Each year the whales return to the protected habitat famous for its whale rubbing beaches. Pods of Orcas come to rub themselves on the barnacle-encrusted rocks, pebbles and gravel seafloor at Robson Bight. It’s quite exciting to see a killer whale in the wild breaking the surface and shooting spurts of mist from its blowhole. I photographed at Robson Bight for almost 30 hours I listened to the whales and became entranced with their individual sounds which we recorded and you can hear in this loop view. Thank you to CETUS Research and Conservation Society for helping to make this photograph possible. I hope you all enjoy the sounds and beauty of Robson Bight.

Returning From the Deep | Photograph by Wendy Timmermans (@seadrops_photography)
“On the coast of the Sinai desert is a small village called Dahab, where the famous Blue Hole is located in the Red Sea. An international community of free divers plunges into the deep, diving on one breath up to depths of 93 meters,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Wendy Timmermans. “Several times a year I co-organize competitions in this amazing place. This picture shows athlete Heike Schwerdtner on the final part of her ascent accompanied by safety free drivers and judges, and with spectators awaiting on the surface.”

“I agree with Your Shot photographer Janet Ellison, who commented, "This is incredible! So beautiful, wonderful lighting, great framing. I feel like I'm right there with them in the water!" This is so magical Wendy. I love the lyricism in this moment you captured, with everybody focused on the one free driver ascending from the depths of darkness. Well done.” — @natgeoyourshot Producer David Y. Lee (@davidylee)
