Friday Jan 10th: Diving with Beluga Whales Presented by Virginia Bria and Art Haseltine
The fabled white whales, very social and very vocal, draw adventuresome naturalists and photographers into the icy waters of the far north. Few divers are successful in photographing belugas in their natural habitat. But, long-time NCUPS members Virginia Bria and Art Haseltine were able to meet the challenge.
Virginia and Art were among a small group of five intrepid divers who, in July 2011, went into the Hudson Bay off Churchill, Canada, to take underwater photos of these enchanting “ghosts of the sea.” They will show their photographic results, explain special challenges of subarctic underwater photography, and share an overview of Hudson Bay, polar bears, dog sledding and an excursion onto the subarctic tundra.
Please join Virginia and Art at the January NCUPS meeting as they share their underwater photography and subarctic adventures.
