Dolphins hunting at Sandpatches

I went out to Sandpatches today. My favourite pod of dolphins were busy chasing salmon. I first saw them close in, but when I went down to the rocks to photograph them they moved north, so I was photographing these at around 2km distance. Today they were very active, with as many as 6-7 leaping out of each wave. There were some complete loop the loops as well! Wonderful stuff.

The conditions were great for photography. After a rain shower, the sun appeared in the distance and provided some great light.

    Looks like the new big lens has been getting a work out mate! 🙂

    • Definitely. I got over 100 shots each with 2 to 6 dolphins in the air. They were having fun.
