The last couple of days we’ve had overcast, fog-like conditions in the morning giving way to clearer conditions as the day goes on. After the first hour or two, it’s been clearing up nicely.
That’s when we start seeing blows all around. The occasional breaching in the distance. Often when we head out to a breaching whale the animal just keeps on doing it. Sometimes they just stop and you don’t see them again. The marine life out here is very unpredictable. I guess that’s what makes life interesting out here.
For me, it’s almost an addiction. To see the rare encounters. To get the perfect photograph or video of that rare encounter. And if we’re lucky enough to stumble across the rare encounter or behavior we can only hope that all the elements come together for good media production.
That’s what drives me. I love marine life photography and video. Conditions are everything. When everything comes together it’s quite the rush. Light wind, small swell and good light at the right angle and I’m as happy as can be.
