Why is it that when you see a whale, splashing, slapping its tail, breaching and generally having a whale of a time, it’s when you don’t have your camera ready? And when you do have your camera and tripod all set up, the whales stay miles offshore so all you see is a plume of white water on the horizon. A mother and calf came so close to our headland a few years ago I could have reached out and touched them. Didn’t have a camera then. Anyway, I sort of got this whale tail shot the other day – even from this distance it was exciting to watch. I think it’s time to invest in decent long lens.

Salt in the air
After several weeks of beautiful calm weather and flat seas, some swell finally rolled in. I woke up this morning to see some pretty big sets arriving at Freshwater Beach. Two crazy surf-skiers were out there enjoying the wild ride.
