A very powerful image, and message.

Roger said...

Wow! that a freaky photo Mary! Good WW to you!!

Andrée said...

That is a really effective statement. You can't help but think of the suffering of the whales when you view this.

Beaman said...

It's a striking image with a wonderful message. The tragic killing of such beautiful marine creatures is obscene. Japan must stop or we could loose one of the world's greatest creatures.

Very interesting. Thanks for sharing.

Wow ! that's a terrible photo montage !

Colin Campbell said...

This is really unpopular here in Australia. Some of the whales the Japanese want to whale are born down the road from Adelaide.

Why hunt whales? I didn't realize they were a threat to anyone!

Chris in Oxford said...

What a great image. Here's hoping it has some effect. The Japanese don't seem inclined to change their ways.

Bobbie said...

Wow, that certainly is an attention-getter. What a dramatic image.

While diving one day off the northern California coast we saw a mother and calf Humpback whale swimming less than a couple hundred feet from the Zodiac we were in.

We cut the outboard and just sat there in awe as they went by.

One of my best memories on the coast.

Jeff, what a very nice picture you paint of humpback whales...northern California...how's the weather? I heard you had big storms...but you must be okay, electricity and internet, right?
