Now that is one priceless shot! So beautiful!My share is posted here, please have a look if you have time.
I think turtles appear so docile. This is a great shot.Congrats on the numbers in the post below - you have a really distinct blog.
I know I say this a lot but you really do take the best underwater shots. I love this. :-)
Fantastic shot, guys. As usual, of course.I would like to wish you -and your families- a very happy 2009!And happy WW today!My post...
the turtle looks so graceful...what a perfect shot!
Outstanding shot, I love it.Cheers and Happy New Year!Regina In Pictures
Happy New Year!The turtle looks so peaceful against simplicity of the water - gliding though the right blue indeed!
Excellent photo of the sea turtle. It must have been fun to swim with them. I was lucky to see some sea turtles on the Big Island and even nesting on Tern Island in French Frigate Shoals.
Simple yet so beautiful. A wonderful picture.
That's beautiful -- looks like it is taking its time :)Happy New Year to you too, Bobbie. Hope your 2009 will be happier and more prosperous!
I'd brave another attempt at scuba if i thought I would see something like that.
Great shot. I love it!
Gorgeous! We were able to swim with a turtle off the coast of Mau'i. What an incredible experience. We also swam with a wild pod of spinner dolphins. Now that was truly amazing...~~~Blessings~~~
Nice one for wordless... Mine's up too hope you can drop by... Happy WW!
What a beautiful action shot! Delightful sense of floating freely!
What a joyful image!
I love sea turtles. I got one the worst sunburns of my life watching sea turtles surface off the jetties on Mustang Island in South Texas. It was hypnotic they were coming up every 8 minutes or so in the same spot every time. There were several individuals so it was quite a show. I lost track of time and ended up roasted! I bet they are amazing underwater.
The turtle seems so much at peace all by itself.
Lovely! I always look forward to your WW shots.
This is ready for National Geographic! A+
hey, I missed you all the last couple of weeks. Glad to get my 'blue' fix back in.Happy New Year & WW!
Awesome..., what an experience that must be!
This is beautiful. I painted a picture of a sea turtle. You picture reminds me of my painting.
This is pretty..
I love your blog it's all blue,they are so unique..
Great photo. Did you take this yourself, or find it somewhere?? It's beautiful either way.
Is that color blue the 'right blue'? Either way it's absolutely gorgeous.
Beautiful, such a clear shot of him too. Love it.
This photo qualifies for Front Page on National Geographic.
Lovely!!! Looking graceful :)
What a cool shot...it reminds me of Finding Nemo:) Happy WW and New Year my friend. Thanks for dropping by:)
Beautiful. Every time I look at one of your shots, I always think how amazing they all are.
Hi all - Thanks very much for visiting and giving us your feedback, which we always appreciate.@ Carletta -- Thanks for the compliments.@ Natural Moments -- Yes, it is always a treat to share the ocean with sea turtles. They are among our favorite marine animals.@ Pamela -- If you take another try at scuba diving and do it here on the Big Island, I can tell you a few spots where you would almost be guaranteed to see a sea turtle.@ Gracie - Good for you! We have resident spinner dolphins on our coast, too. They really are wonderful.@ Shannon -- I have to say, observing sea turtles underwater bears MUCH less risk of sunburn than what you described! @ Connie -- I would love to see that painting!@ Alice -- Of course I took the photo myself! Virtually all the photos on The Right Blue are my original work. (The ones that are not are clearly marked.)@ Chris (A Free Man) -- The background actually is pretty close to the 'right blue' -- maybe a tad more sunlight filtering down to be precisely THE right blue... ;-)..and to those of you who mentioned National Geographic, if you would like to be my agent, let me know. :-DHappy New Year to all of you! Hope 2009 turns out well for you.Bobbie
I'm reading a book about sea turtles right now. Last night's section briefly discussed the elongated "hand" bones of the Green Turtle's front flippers. So this was a timely post to wake up to!
This is so beautiful! it reminds me a lot of the NEMO movie that boys watch everyday. The clear deep blue water is amazing! nice beautiful shot!thanks for visiting my site and leaving a nice comments on my blog. Hope you have a wonderful day!
@ Lavender - Glad to oblige. Perhaps you were 'transmitting' something, because I almost chose a different photo to post -- not a sea turtle. @ The Yothers - Thank you, and welcome to The Right Blue.Bobbie
What a wonderful shot of an amazing creature!! Thanks for posting!
We welcome your comments and invite your questions. Dialogue is a good thing!Bobbie & Jerry
