California Blues!

Great Video!

This film is a tribute to those times when everything comes together to make a magical moment.
I shot this film on one perfect, cloudless, windless afternoon with clean water off Anacapa Island and at least six blue sharks under our boat. The largest was 8 feet long and the others were between 5-7 feet.

Shark populations have declined worldwide, including blue sharks, and seeing this many blue sharks at once was like a dream come true. I remember frequently seeing blue sharks swimming on the surface of the water during the late 80s while crossing the channel to the northern California Channel Islands. Nowadays, you are not likely to see any.

Indeed, what a serendipitous moment, beautifully captured!
