GULF Coast, A reminder

(11AM EST – promoted by Nightprowlkitty)

  I`m a day late this week, in posting reminders of what kind of life we stand to lose due to the oil gusher in the  gulf.

I know it is presently capped, albeit temporarily, but I worry about the situation going south fast.

  I feel that the decisions that were made in the last few weeks, are to hide to the public, the fact that they (BP) are not very confident they can stop this disaster, even with the relief wells so near completion.

  But I post these images in hopes that people  will never forget this disaster, man made, I should add, & never allow it to happen again.

It seems like greed has taken over, regardless of the consequences to the livelihood of humans, & the lives of all the defenseless animals above & below the surface.

  1. Have a nice weekend.

    I always try & answer all comments &/or questions.

    That`s how I roll.

  2. that when I view your photos, not only do I get to view the world vicariously through your eyes, but I also get to peer back through your camera lens, to view your inner being, deep into the essence of all that is Knuck, and it is good.

    The truth and beauty in your soul is manifest by the truth and beauty in your photography. You are a good man. Thank you, bud…Peace

  3. fois que je peux dis “merci” et “fantastique?”

  4. fantastic photos, always reminders of earth’s incredible, natural beauty.

    It’s amazing how nature uses colors, textures and shapes to highlight her delicate handiwork. Thanks for reminding us.

    you must be a big fan of Aquariums.

    great photography btw,

    simply haunting.

  5. Are all of these species those that thrive in salt water, near the surface of the ocean, and prefer a similar temperature range?

    Given the variety of conditions existing at various latitudes and water depths, it would seem that tanks providing different conditions might be necessary?

    Also, is the matter of keeping predators and prey separate as complicated as it might seem?

    Hope you’re having a great weekend, Knuck!
