Fins to the left, Fins to the right
Here's a few more whale shots. Catching the fins was a lot easier than getting them to jump.
I risked life and limb to get these. OK, maybe not life and limb, just my breakfast. The top two shots were taken from a boat we went out on in the hopes of seeing whales. I was hoping to get a closer shot of one jumping but they were pretty timid that morning. The two top shots were taken with a Tamron 18-250mm lens at 70mm and the third shot was taken from the shore with a Sigma 150-500mm lens at 500mm.
It seems the older I get the less my body likes being on the ocean in a boat. About half way in to the two hour cruise I was having a hard time concentrating on anything except what I could do to keep from, uh, feeding the fish. I did make it through the cruise without heaving over the side but there were several others that weren't so lucky, including my mother-in-law.
