More to come…



  1. What a tale! It has to be almost surreal when you are close and see the size of them, WOW! 🙂

    • tale = tail 🙂

    • It is a bit surreal. Sometimes I’m so awe struck I forget to lift the camera for an image, and I confess on this trip I was late with the spouting quite a lot…being on the look out and then watching rather than photographing.

      I hope you get to take this one off your Bucket List.

  2. The misty fog atmosphere just created an ethereal look to this photograph, a perfect wordless post!

  3. What a lovely day! We do get dolphins in Greece, but I’ve always wanted to go whale watching…

    • Thank you Marina! It was fun. I’ve always wanted to see and photograph Dolphins jumping up the air while out whale watching or at anytime I have been on the sea, but no such luck.

  4. Going, going, gone 🙂

  5. 🙂

  6. I wonder about those birds that are seen close to the fluke of the whale. Are they shearwaters? And do they follow the whales, or do they just happen to be there? Those pics you’ve shared smell of adventure!

    • I think you’re right and the brown ones are Shearwaters. I saw lots of Sea Gulls, and Common Murres hanging around too. They’re no dummies and know if there are whales there’s usually fish. 🙂

      Thank you so much for the question and comment!

  7. Marvelous! 👏💕

  8. It looks like you had a great day for whale watching! I love the color of the water and th action shots you’re sharing. We sa dolphins on our watch, but no whales. Thanks for sharing yours.

    • I didn’t see any dolphins this time, but did see a raft of Sea Lions! That was a first for me.
      I was hoping to see Killer Whales. They’d been reported just the day before, but we didn’t see any.

      I wish there was pricing for an annual pass of whale watching. I’d go often! That would be my amusement park for the year. 🙂

A penny for your thoughts...
