just spend a week away with the caravan at Pambula Beach, beach right in front of the caravan Park. I had the kayak out there at times and would have been right on top of the whale.
I believe its a Southern right Whale.

We didn`t get to go on a Whale tour this time, but keen to go next year.

I rarely have photos of marine mammals...I did happen to catch a few porpoises jumping behind our boat off Gloucester, Mass last October at dusk:

Had a tough time passing this one off in the Natural and Landscape thread :wink:

Elephants- 3 by Mojave Cliff, on Flickr

Shot taken at Sam Simeon- half way between Santa Barbara and Monterrey Ca. Elephant Seal rookery is active from Nov to Mar with thousands of animals present. Adolescent seagull flying above the herd was interesting to watch. I fiddled with this snap for a bit in LR and settled on this. BW with the bird brightened a bit and sharpened. I really like the composition but the IQ is off. Wish I could say the Fstop and focus were right where they needed to be. All this points to the need to practice, practice, practice with the camera.

Would some added contrast/lighting help this one, where was it taken.


Cheers

Nice one. Despite the IQ not being the best, I also liked the composition, it's pretty nice :)

went on a Whale watching cruise, came across a couple of Humpback pods, but they were a bit hard to get good photos off. They were a bit unpredictable and getting the boat close enough and in the right position and the right angle to the sun was proving to be difficult.
Learnt a lot of about how tricky chasing humpbacks can be, need to have another crack at them. This time next year maybe.

Got a bit lucky with this shot of a dolphin

Some nice detail there Max, it’s always difficult to shoot this kind of thing as you need to have the camera on the eye all the time so not to miss out. As for the sun position you have to take what you get. Are you at Pambula.


Cheers
