Daily Photo – Saturday 25th July – Whale tail

An absolutely brilliant day out on a boat (coming from someone who easily gets sea sick), out from Surfers Paradise on a Whale watching tour.

They guaranteed whale sightings….and didn’t fall short. This little fella (apparently a teenager) stayed with our boat for over an hour, coming up every few minutes or so.

Originally I wasn’t taking any pictures, as I just wanted to savour the reality of it, but after a while, I knew spending a little time behind a screen wouldn’t take away from the event.

This is my favourite, as it not only shows his tail rather than a hump of his back, but also the stillness of the Pacific ocean, and the high rises of Surfer’s in the background.

Fabulous. Might even do that trip again 🙂
