[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I went whale watching this past August near Provincetown, Massachusetts.

I can say that this was one of the best experiences in my life.

It was absolutely exciting, when you wait for a whale to be seen in the water, then above the water, and you do not know where this may happen, what side, maybe even UNDER you boat! (I was slightly afraid of this!) :)

We were very lucky to see many whales. I loved to watch the fountains of water that they made.

I advise you to go on a trip like this if you like water, breeze, sailing and excitement!

P.S. I had to saturate the colors of this photo, because the natural water in those places does not have that bright color. It was warm and pleasant though.
You can see the real color of water in Cape Cod on my previous photo, called "Clear Water".
I also loved watching seagulls catching crabs in the shallow water, but this is another story. Felt sorry for the crabs, by the way.

The saturation worked out well, you're right the water is usually kind of brownish there! Great capture, I'm jealous that you got to see this. We will probably be in New York in July, we'll hope to see you then!

Happy New Year!


Hi Irina

I know the feeling - very exciting; watched them in Antarctica.
