BREACH!  II by Gina Ruttle  (Whalegeek)

Currently unavailable for purchase

Second in a series of one humpback whale’s breaching sequence…

BREACH!!!!! That’s often what one hears when a humpback whale rockets out of the water. I confess it’s music to my whale geek ears.

when whales wave
the sky sighs

when whales wave
the whole earth cries
when whales wave
creation revives
when whales wave
hope survives








Talented fellow RedBubbler Sherri Nicholas has begun a gracious tradition of promoting fellow Bubblers’ art with her ARTISTS 4 ARTISTS concept in order to introduce viewers to other artists’ views of the world. Sherri has kindly granted me permission to continue her tradition.

There are many gifted RedBubble artists who post incredible whale images in their portfolios as well as other wonderful photographic subjects. Following are some who have enriched my life with the beauty they share. If I have neglected to mention any other whale photographers, please drop me a BubbleMail and I will happily rectify my oversight. Please have a look at the portfolios of these talented, wonderful artists. Enjoy!
