Good morning....couldnt seem to wake up this morning and when I did i tried to make coffee and the milk is sour. A great start to the week
We had a wonderful weekend away in Hermanus... I was spoilt by Rob and given a very expensive Burberry handbag, as grateful and happy as i was....i love handbags....i kept thinking that a Nikon D7100 or a super zoom lens would have been money better spent...
We arrived at the hotel....its situated on a cliff above the sea, we looked out the window and I could see 6 whales in the bay (Walker Bay), needless to say i was out in a flash with my camera. This is when lens envy started creepin in...i had a weeny 270mm lens, many had huge lenses. I had to do the best i could. It is not easy capturing whales as as Alex said to me in a note they are mostly underwater. This whale launched itself out of the water.
They are Southern Right whales....this action is called Breaching and is one of the most spectacular behaviours to watch.
V2 is it landing back in the water
V3 a view of the sea
V4 and 5 a few more images of whales
Not my normal standard but wanted to share them....
