Breaching Humpback Whale
Made a trip to Monterey Bay in California last weekend for some whale watching with my daughter. Went back again on Tuesday as it’s very addictive. On Saturday’s trip, we saw 10 humpback whales, 3 blue whales and 1 fin whale. It was foggy/cloudy but still made for some decent photography.
Got to check one photo off my bucket list when this humpback jumped out of the water. It was very cool to see and was hoping that I got the shot as it happened very quickly.
