With my eyes now open, my senses sharpened… the hunt was on!
What has once be seen, can never be unseen. That pretty much sums up what had happened to me in my first few outings with the drone. Primed to look beyond, every wave now brought another chance for a creature to emerge before me.
Whilst walking the dogs with Jody (my darling wife) I took the drone out for another flight. Up and up I soared to once again look down on what lay beneath… I wasn’t to be disappointed.
My hunt for the next image of the series somewhat ironically lead to “The Hunt” being captured. A turtle fleeing for its life from the savage bite of a sea snake. Both riding the waves to try and gain an advantage. Clouds of sea and sand swirling in their wake.
And then… just as soon as they had appeared, they vanished. Disappearing into the depths. Did the turtle survive? Who knows. But the chase, “The Hunt” will now endure for all time through this image.
