The Majestic Beauty of Whales in the Wild

Share: 

While whales are indisputably a beautiful animal, photographing them can be somewhat of a challenge. You'll probably be shooting in the middle of the day on the water which throws up all sorts of exposure problems and trying to line them up with a good background has obvious limitations. That's why we think this collection shows some real skill with a camera by the various photographers.

What an amazing post !!!!

I have been fortunate enough to spend 10 days on the water in northern Vancouver Island. Every day we saw some humpback whales, orcas, bears and other sea lions ……. if you check out my Facebook page (Picts2live Photography) or my website : wildlife gallery, you’ll see a few of my pictures.

Amazing. I was fortunate enough to have a chance to take some of those “tail” photos myself, watching a pod of humpbacks in Alaska. (I’d post the pic but I have no clue how to go about it according to your instructions…)

I’ve loved whales for years and years. These photos remind me of some of the reasons i love them…their grave, their beauty, thrir “right-ness” are all captured. Thanks!
