Marina, California. This is probably my first and last post promoting “wallpaper” for your computer. But in the midst of Shark Week, this image of a whale shark and diver was too compelling to ignore. National Geographic just released this photo for use as wallpaper as part of their “Life in Color: Blue“. gallery series – which they describe as:
The sweeping color of sea and sky, blue is a common thread in nature, seen in the cerulean of a whale shark (pictured here), the indigo of a stormy night, and the cobalt of a peacock’s feathers. Over the centuries, the hue has come to represent calm, cold, mysticism, and sadness.
The photo was taken by Brian Skerry, one of world’s most talented underwater photographers and a passionate ocean conservationist.
