This Rips My Guts Out: Sea Turtle Trapped Under Water

The world's best underwater photographs of 2010: Our World Underwater and Deep Indonesia - Telegraph

"Underwater Sadness' by Ramon Dominquez is a powerful photo that points to the sheer brutality of human ignorance. How can this turtle survive? Goddammit. Think and do and do right. Realize that everything you think, breath, touch, do makes or breaks life all over this planet. Set this turtle free. Love your world.


  1. This breaks my heart and makes me angry beyond words at the same time!! I do, of course, feel exactly as you do! What does it take to keep this from happening again and again???? Thanks for the post!


  2. The ignorance of humans is astounding. To think that this is just one turtle. How many more have drown this way? And why does it continue?

  3. I agree with the previous comments. Thanks for the post, Sandy.

    I agree - heart-breaking, especially as it can be avoided if only we took better care of our planet.

  5. Oh, Sandy. How sad. It makes me furious too.

  6. How could anyone take a photo like this and not set this little creature free!
    Too sad.
