    Here are a few shots from a whale watching trip last year. They are humpback whales off the Sunshine Coast in Queensland. It was my first whale watching trip and we were extremely lucky with at least 20 whales and numerous breaches. Definitely luckier than the previous tour who only saw a flipper from about 150 meters away!

    Great shots. I love doing whale watches and lucky that I live in Massachusetts so it's easy to go. Planning on a trip again this year with my youngest daughter.

    That first shot of the whale breaching is great! Very dramatic.

    My favorite is the last one. Wow, what tremendous detail and clarity. You can almost hear the water running off the tail. Beauty!
