Feature Foto Friday

Select Fridays will now feature a photographer and photo.  Congratulations to Colin for being the first!

Featured “Fotographer”: Colin Hocking

Website: Colin Hocking Photography

Background: I met Colin on trip to the Bahamas through my vacation club.  Colin has been involved in photography for over 35 years after gaining his BSC Hons in Photographic Science. Currently he works as a freelance photographer, educator and workshop/tour leader. He founded the Ballantyne Photography Club, is on the board of the Charlotte Camera Club, and is an active member of the PPA and NANPA. He also leads photography trips.  Check out his workshop on Merritt Island in April here.

Image Title: Life’s a Breach

Location: Maui, HI

Fun Fact:  It is thought that Humpback whales, like the bottlenose dolphin, shuts down only half of its brain, along with the opposite eye while sleeping. The other half of the brain stays awake at a low level of alertness. This attentive side is used to watch for predators, obstacles and other animals. It also signals when to rise to the surface for a fresh breath of air so that they don’t drown while sleeping. After approximately two hours, the animal will reverse this process, resting the active side of the brain and awaking the rested half.
