The other target of my recent trip to the Aviemore/Inverness area.

Bottlenose dolphins breaching just a few metres away from the shore. Fantastic sight. First time in six visits for me that they have actually fully cleared the water.

A very fine shot, timed to absolute perfection, the action so crisp and clear.
And what a wonderful experience to see this in the wild and not in some supermarina.
Ronnie.

Super timing, think I'd have preferred a landscape format though, but that's being picky with what is an exceptional image.

Thanks all.

Have some in landscape format - the point of this being in portrait was just that the sea blended in to the sky and that was too good a background to waste.

Will post some of the others later.

Thanks Pete for the EC and thanks Ronnie for the UA.

Thanks Brian for the UA.

Was good to finally see these great creatures giving a display. Did not look promising when we first arrived, but at one point they were almost too close!

Fantastic shot. I have visited Chanonry Point a couple of times, and although I have seen the dolphins very close, they never breached like that! Very envious!
