This young juvenile whale breached multiple times; this was the first time I had captured a breach with a photograph. Watching these magnificent creatures erupt through the water's surface, be above the water then crash back into the water is an experience beyond belief.
Thanks, JoshuaAsel! It's an experience of epic proportions to see this magnificent creatures erupt through the water, travel above the water and resoundingly crash back into the water. I'll never get enough of the experience!
Hi, lyh19! I'm behind in my commenting! I, too, hope that sometime this might be an experience of yours. Whales are incredible, majestic creatures. My daughter and I are addicted to whale watching; I am also addicted to digital photography and take huge amounts of photos. There's going to be more whale photos coming :)
Thank you, Azura Firdaus W! I love these creatures, love watching them and love photographing them. They are truly amazing, majestic creatures.
totally epic! very nice :)
Hi, williefromwi! I hope you do get to experience this one day; it's an incredible experience watching these majestic creatures. My daughter and I are addicted; we've been out several times this year and will be going again next weekend. The next watch we do will be our 68th. I'm also addicted to digital photography so I have over a gajillion shots. Stay tuned....there will be lots more whale photos to share.
wonderful spotting, it is a dream of mine to be able to see and photograph these great creatures someday.
wow. how I wish I was there to witness this!
It's taking me a while to figure out what's what with the info boxes....thank you for the help...practice makes perfect and I'll be doing a lot of practicing. Thank you for the help!
Awesome spotting, Elaine. It must have been a wonderful experience. As you already correctly added the scientific and common names, you don't need to fill in the suggested ID box. That is for use when people don't know what their spotting is and they are asking other Noah community members to suggest an ID.
