...in Port Macquarie (north of Sydney) where the whales have just started their northwards migration. Gotta say, taking a photo while in a 1-meter swell in a 'rigid-hulled inflateable' boat is not any easy thing to do! I took the EPL-1 with Zuiko 40-150 (+mmf2) and VF-2. The VF-2 was critical to having any chance of getting a focused shot, as it gave a clearer view and ensured the focus point stayed where it needed to in the swell. Several others on board had P&S cameras and found it impossible to view/shoot using LCD (due to bright sunshine and constant movement). This is a young male Humpback whale cruising around the bay. The spray above is where he had just 'blown'. He is about 100 meters out from the beach.
