The VI’s love turtles

Turtle hatchlings, free at last

Steve Simonsen, the world class St. John photographer, has been working on a documentary about sea turtles.  Here’s a clip of his work-in-progress, showing baby turtles escaping their underwater nest and heading swimming to the future.  It’s wonderful the Virgin islands waters can be a part of this circle of life.

The footage of the baby hatchling leatherback turtles was filmed with a Sony PD 150 and Nite Rider HID 14 W lights. No tripod.
