Today is Humboldt Squid day. I just got a copy of "Duikmagazine", the best diving magazine that we have here in the Netherlands. The magazine features an eight page story about Humboldt Squids that I made last September. That trip brought us far into the Sea of Cortez. I was on a live aboard expedition with the goal to find these enormous Red Giants. It took a lot of time before we finally found the animals, but at least we found them. Duikmagazine has used one of my Humboldt Squid images for the cover.
Andre Crone - Elysia Productions will, following the successful journey in 2011, lead an exclusive expedition to Mexico in 2012. The purpose of this expedition is photographing Sailfish. Sailfish are the fastest fish in the world and their hunting behavior is spectacular. The past year the trip was such a success that we decided to return in 2012. There are very few people who have seen this phenomenon since this is only done 5 or 6 years now.
André Crone together with African Watersports will organize a photography trip to South Africa for the Sardine Run next year. This trip is planned from 5-11 July 2012. The Sardine Run is the most impressive showcase of natural predation in the world. Vast schools of Sardines are swept along the eastern coast of South Africa by an enormous body of cold water. These Sardines attract Dolphins, Humpback Whales, Brydes Whales, birds and many different kinds of sharks that all predate on the Sardines.
