    • It’s hard to judge distances over water, and while the whales came close to our boat the photos have a lot to do with shooting with a good lens. When the pair unexpectedly sounded, crossed beneath our boat and a short time later lunged on the other side, it caught us totally by surprise and left us feeling a little vulnerable. They didn’t seem to care about our boat, but they were huge – and, at that point, closer than we wanted. Thanks for reading!

  1. Wow! Awesome photos! I just read a story in the Bee today about a sailor who was almost home from his sailing around the world adventure….his boat was sunk by a whale! He sent out a distress call and was rescued. They are majestic creatures to be sure and very powerful!
