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.

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!
