 Local Photographer Wins International Award

“Gray Whale Plays Pushing Tourists” by Joseph Ruiz-Cheires won the 2020 Instagram Drone Photo Award in the category of Nature. Organized as part of the prestigious Siena International Photo Awards Festival, the photo contest highlights the best aerial drone photography from around the world. Said the winner when obtaining the award: “At the end of the gray whale season, I was told about a gray whale that, for the last 3 years, used to play with the boats, pushing them gently. So we went back the year after and incredibly the gray whale appeared and this shot is the result.”

    Thank you!
