Words from Santayana, Rachel Carson,Shakespeare, and Paolini bring Life to Still Photos

Mother and calf Sperm Whales communicate with song.

“The earth has music for those who listen.” 
                                                                                          George Santayana

                                                             A school of barracuda circle in a crystal sea.

“Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature -- the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter.” 

                                                                                        Rachel Carson, 'Silent Spring'


 A tiny island floats in the incredible blue of the Andaman Sea.

“I like this place and could willingly waste my time in it.” 

                                                            William Shakespeare

 A young Whale Shark swims slowly through tropical waters as it feeds on plankton.

“The sea is emotion incarnate. It loves, hates, and weeps. It defies all attempts to capture it with words and rejects all shackles. No matter what you say about it, there is always that which you can't.” 

                                                                                                 Christopher Paolini, 'Eragon'


The octopus is the 'wizard' of color change and disguise; flamboyant one moment and hidden the next.
