Bonjour,
Une photo de mon passage en Equateur pres de l'ISla de la Plata où près de 200 baleines se reproduisent tous les ans entre juillet et septembre. Nous etions en bateau, j'ai troqué le zoom contre le grand angle (impossible de cadrer avec les vagues a 300mm) et voilà le resultat. Photo prise a 80mm au 300D.
a+
Seb

Wow congratulation, it's difficult to capture the exact moment in wich the whale come out!
Beautiful
Bye Tom

Wow, Sebastien, this is a unique shot.
What a rare moment to make a shot from, I'm so fascinated to see this and wish to see this sometimes with my own eyes. Sharpness is excellent, I love your shot, thank you very much, bye

Thats a very good shot. You caught the action at the precise moment (the whale is just at the perfect angle against the horizon too). Details could've been better in the whites but thats not a significant detraction in this fine image. Thanks for sharing!

Una fotografia espectacular!!, el movimiento es impecable.

gracias

Félicitation pour cette belle prise. Toujours spectaculaire de voir sauter une balene à bosse. Cet été moi et ma compagne on n'a vu le mème spectacle ici au Quebec sur le fleuve St-Laurent à la heuteur de Grande-Bergeronne sur la Cote-Nord.

Merci pour l'envoie!

Joseph.

Eh bien, Seb, c'est une magnifique photo que je t'envie. J'espère pouvoir un jour croiser le chemin de ces magnifiques mammifères. Si je saisis bien, avec la houle il est quasiment impossible d'utiliser le télé ?..... Cela dit, tu t'en sors pas si mal que ça.

Bravo.

Wow!!! Wonderful picture, great pov and details. This must have been a very special experience to see this whale in action. You make me jealous ;)
Congrats,
Geert

I guess the whale try to rubbing it's back from any parasitic animal, very nice moment you got here, TFS

Great shot - I tried to get images like this near Maui over Xmas, and was never able to get close enough, or catch the right moment. Congratulations!

WOW, great photo. I would have loved to have been there. Beautiful.
