Out of the Deep by Adele Oliver

The tail fluke of a humpback whale ...... I never dreamt I would come this close.
The humpback whale resides in the waters of Northern British Columbia in the Summer and migrates to the warm waters of Mexico and Hawaii to have its young. My son-in-law took us out in his small open boat , and I almost missed this shot when the whale was immediately infront of the boat. What excitement!!!!

Thank you so much for your many visits and comments for my Christmas and New years cards - and thank you for all your good wishes. Soon I will be back in Vancouver and be in FC regularly.

What an exciting picture, Adele.
It must have been very thrilling to sit in a small boat in immediate nearness of a whale.
A great experience for you, I think.

Hallo Adele, ich wäre gestorben, wenn ich diesem Buckelwal begegnet wäre. Noch dazu in einem kleinen Boot. Das ist ja lebensgefährlich. Eine spektakuläre Aufnahme von Dir, toll.

Wow... what a shot! I was once in front of a wild African elephant in Uganda.. rendez-vous with big animals are exciting and risky and a little incredible

Deryck, 4.01.2011 at 20:05h

Congratulations Adele! Not a shot everyone gets! It must have been a thrilling experience

Leeb Monika, 4.01.2011 at 21:04h

Amazing! What a great capture! It must have been really exciting!
I was on whale watching in Norway nearly 10 years ago and I felt so terribly seasick that I almost missed the whale.
Enjoy the rest of your journey and come back home healthy.
Kind regards

Sally Dunn, 4.01.2011 at 21:33h

Gosh Adele, what a fantastic opportunity and good job you had your camera ready to capture this amazing tail!! Fabulous water dripping off the tail too.
Return to us safely and soon!

To meet these big whales must be a great feeling. You made a marvelous photo it looks as whales in the bbc-series planet erde.
