Signs of Life

The above picture is a fluke print.  If you know to look for it, it's the sign that a whale was recently in the area.  It is like a footprint, and it's left by the powerful upstroke of a whale's tail when it is near the surface.  A little circle of calm water in an ocean of waves and swells.  It's a sign that something really big is nearby.  It's a sign of life.
I love that calm can mean life.  I love that calm can mean something amazing is nearby.  Signs of life don't have to be craziness and chaos.  Quiet, calm, powerful, majestic life.  That's what I want. 


  1. I've gotten very behind on the photo prompts but I'm really enjoying the inspiration. Your photography is incredible. SO happy you have joined Inside Out.

  2. I'm so glad you shared your blog on Big Picture (I'm in the Mastering Manual mode class). Lovely photos and writing!
