Yesterday was our whale watch. We saw plenty of whales and some breaches, but nothing up close. Taking photos of whales is pretty tough. It is a big ocean and locating an image when using a long lens takes a little longer. This is the best picture I had that was close. It does not take long for a whale to roll and dive, but you have about a second to get on the creature and get it in focus. The last thing you see is the tail and then it is gone for a while. I will add this to my collection of whale tails.
The trip back was probably the roughest water I have been on. I don't get nausea, but I have not spent enough time on heave seas to know when I should be anxious..
