Whale Watching in Monterey Bay

Yesterday, my niece and I took a four-hour whale watching trip and were fortunate enough to see lots of humpback whales and one killer whale. When the day began it was foggy but the sky cleared after about an hour.  When I first saw the earliest photos I thought I had accidentally shot them in black and white, but I had not. Those shots show how the fog affects perceptions of colour, and I was able to get a great picture of a fishing boat leaving the harbour. I also feel fortunate to have got one good shot of a tail flip before one whale went back into the water, a couple of waterspouts, and the dorsal fin of the Orca.  All in all, it was a fabulous day.

  1. When I was in Alaska, the whales were a highlight. It was a thrill to see them. I was not quick enough to get pictures, so thanks for yours.
