If you go to Cabo Pulmo you have to snorkel with the jacks, a unique experience in Cabo Pulmo!  The jacks form a tornado from the bottom (45’ of more) to the surface.  When you approach the school of jacks they will make a space for you and when you look to any side or look down you find yourself like you have become part of the school. You are completely surrounded by them and feel you can almost touch them.   In this painting I want to show what the snorkeler’s view of this school is like, making sure my shadow gives you an idea of the massiveness of this school of jacks.

 

"Los Jureles, el Sol…y Yo"

Jurel Voraz

Si vas a Cabo Pulmo tienes que snorquelear con los jureles, ¡una experiencia única en Cabo Pulmo!  Los jureles forman un tornado desde el fondo (15mts o más) hasta la superficie.  Cuando te acercas al cardumen de jureles ellos harán un espacio para ti y cuando miras a cualquier lado o hacia abajo te das cuenta de que te has convertido en parte del cardumen.  Estas completamente rodeado por ellos y sientes que casi puedes tocarlos.  En esta pintura quiero mostrar como se ve este cardumen desde la perspectiva del snorkeleador, asegurándome que mi sombra te dé una idea de la inmensidad de este cardumen de jureles.
