Thanks Stan.
Win, it was quite rough when we were out too. We were in a medium size zodiac which the operator keep manauvering so we were close to the whales and heading into the waves so to reduce movement specially swaying and rocking. I noticed that a tradition tour boat that was out there rocked about much more than our Zodiac.
We did get fairly close to the whales. I used the 70-200 on the 5D-mk2. The above shots are about 50% crops. I stood with my knees braced against the zodiac inflatable pontoon to stabilize myself and held the camera aimed in the area of the whale in anticipation of the next breach. Of course the 70-200's IS was on. And maybe I had some luck.

Wow. he's gotta be 20 feet in the air in the second picture. I would love to go and take some whale shots, but that's for the future.

Great shots. Timing was near perfect.


My life is like one big RAW file....way too much post processing needed.
