National Geographic Expeditions Photographer Susan Seubert heading to Baja

Hola!  Today I leave for La Paz, a city on the Baja Peninsula on the Gulf of California for the Baja California Odyssey as the on-board Photography Expert for National Geographic. 🙂  I will be on the National Geographic Sea Bird for eleven days to explore with naturalists and guests the Gulf of California and its islands, the Baja Peninsula, and some whale watching in San Ignacio Lagoon on the Pacific side.  Every year, the Eastern Pacific Grey Whales migrate to the protected inlets along the Pacific Coast of Baja California to give birth.  Last year was magnificent, as I was on board later in the season and there were many whales with their calves.  This trip will focus on not only the natural beauty of the Gulf of California and its islands, but will also have an archeological component, making this trip a particularly special one.  I look forward to working with my colleagues on board and meeting all the guests who share our interest in education about and preservation of this unique environment.  Here is a link to some images I made last year from the trip that emphasized the whales in Bahia de Magdalina.  Enjoy y hasta pronto!
