GULF Coast, A dedication

(2PM EST – promoted by Nightprowlkitty)

   I`m back with more underwater images in support of the gulf  coast, it`s inhabitants above & below the surface, & to all who`ve worked so hard to keep the daily developments on the front pages.

   I would like to also mention a big “Thank You” to all the workers out on all the skimming boats, the oil retrieval crews on the beaches,  &  the crews out working on the rigs, tankers & the ROV operators who have worked nonstop to end this gusher.

I cannot blame them for the bad decisions of their managers.

  Now that the gusher is stopped albeit temporarily, I think we can have a little breather.

Then we`ll have to get back to keeping this catastrophe  at the top of the news, since we all know how the style of news cycles here can rapidly shift away the  important issues to  iPhones & Lohans.

   I must stress that the images I post are not necessarily gulf inhabitants, they are my tank inhabitants, but it`s the only way I can personally do my part to make others aware of what we stand to lose, when we are not proper stewards of our planet.

 With that in mind, we have to be prepared to work for years to clean up this disaster.

The oceans are the heartbeat of this planet, & we just gave it a stroke.

  2. I’m glad you included a sunset photo, perhaps for old time’s sake.

    A few, such as “Starbursts and Galaxies” and “Fluorescing Tube Anemone” look like they may have had some special effects applied (perhaps special light filters, etc.?).  In any event, they are quite stunning.

    Hope all is going well in your part of the world, Knuck!

  3. Merci, Knuck!
