In the first image you captured the moment of truth! Did you get seasick while shooting on the boat???
Have a nice weekend.

That is a sight I'd love to see myself someday! How refreshing, that blue blue water. Great moment with the water jetting from the whales blowhole. Australia seems a marvelous place. I can't imagine all the effort and sacrifice it must have taken to travel so widely, and judging by your photos, well worth every second!

@Y.Ikeda: No, I didn't get seasick! :-) However, very strong sudden winds blowing from Antartida forced us to go straight to the shore right when we were having so much fun with our new friend...

gorgeous this series ! I like whales so big and yet so soft and light in the water ! I like also the color blue ocean !...
But what animals do not approach you ?!!

Bye :))

If it were not for the water blowing up in the first picture I would think this was some kind of rocks in the water Jose. :) I have never been able to get pictures of whales as I so seldom get down to the coast and then they always seem to be too far off.
