Photo by Michael Yamashita @yamashitaphoto | These two buses pulled up to a red light as I was crossing the street in Times Square. I liked the reflections and walked between the buses, finding these faces staring at one another. I shot a few frames and got off the street as the light changed to green. Photographer’s luck. #rain #reflection #nyc #manhattan #newyorkcity


Photo by Cristina Mittermeier @Mitty | It was a lucky shot to fit an 80-foot long whale into a single frame. I took this photograph on my first immersion in the Azores, and I remember thinking to myself, boy, this is easy! I was wrong. Sleek and surrounded by nothing but the dark waters of the open ocean, the blue whale resembles a rocket ship suspended in space. They dive deep and they swim fast, so getting in the right place at the right time without disturbing their feeding is really hard. Blue whales are the largest animals to have ever existed, reaching mind-boggling dimensions of 100 feet long and upwards of 200 tons—and all on a diet composed almost exclusively of krill, tiny shrimplike crustaceans! Blue whales don't have any natural predators, but in the 1800s and early 1900s, they were hunted to the edge of extinction at the hands of humans. Today, they remain endangered, and we are still fighting to protect them. Follow me @Mitty to find out how you can join our movement at @SeaLegacy and support a healthy and abundant ocean. #Whale #History #TurningTheTide #Ocean #Conservation

Underwater Flight | Photograph by Eduardo Lopez Negrete
"A massive school of mobula rays gather off the coast of Bahia Magdalena in Californa Sur, Mexico. We first encountered them at the surface, but pretty soon they dove down to about 60 feet," remembers #YourShotPhotographer Eduardo Lopez Negrete. "It was pretty hard keeping up with them from the surface, let alone dive down on a quick breath of air to try to capture a glimpse of this very beautiful sight."
