Scenes from an Aquarium

A delicate universe under the sea is revealed at the Monterey Bay Aquarium located along California’s Central Coast. Meet undulating jellyfish, waving kelp, rising fish schools and an elegantly unfurling squid.

I filmed this on a regular point and shoot camera during a trip to the aquarium in Fall 2010, and edited this short in August 2011.

Gray Whale Washes Ashore Pescadero State Beach

Gray Whale Washed Ashore Pescadero State Beach from kristine a. wong on Vimeo.

In the first half of June, a 25-foot female gray whale washed ashore Pescadero State Beach in Pescadero, Calif., south of Half Moon Bay.

A necropsy performed by the Marine Mammal Center revealed that the 1-2 year old animal had sustained trauma to its head and thorax, likely due to colliding with a ship, though the exact cause could not be determined.

This video was shot on June 16, 2011.

This is the second time in eight months that a whale has washed ashore the California coast at a beach in Pescadero. In October 2010, an 85-foot blue whale and her fetus washed ashore Bean Hollow State Beach. (See video video posted here).

I produced this video (camera, video editing, writing) for Half Moon Bay Patch.
