The perfect time to shoot a picture if you are a photographer..
The worst time to choose to dive if you are a penguin!

The legendary Oarfish

After the emotion of the birth of a brand new volcanic island we have here another amazing history of extremely rare and unexpected sea encounters. Michael Kanzler a fisher from Isla San Marco in Mexico was driving his boat home this Jamuary when suddenly spotted these two huge fishes swimming like sea-snakes on the surface of the sea

The long experienced fisher recognized them as a couple of  "Oarfish" a rarely seen specie of fishes which lives in the deep of the ocean. Those "sea-monsters" are the longest bony fishes in the world, reaching the length of 11 metres and have the strange habit of lingering at the surface when sick or dying

He tried to push the fish back into water but everything was useless, the two Oarfish had defintely decided to find their death on the rocks.

Giselle and the dress of water

In our effort to continously present contents related to the water we couldn't lose the opportunity of showing something quite different from boats and sea creatures.. but still beautiful indeed. The top Brasilian model  Giselle Bundchen had launched a new advertising campaign in order to promote her new line of sandals designed by herself:  Ipanema G2B. The campaign has been named "Porque a terra è azul" (Because the earth is blue) and shares also an ecological message aimed at protecting the Xingù river from pollution. From that, the idea of creating a water dress on the perfect body of the model. Rumours are that the images needed six months of  Photoshop post-processing in order to create the incredible effect. Well spent time in our opinion because the result is awesome, isn't it?
