Anyone interested in a whale of a shot?
« on: January 28, 2008, 10:03:50 AM »

Got back from 2 week stay in Kona last Wednesday.  Used Nikon D200 Nikkor 70 200 zoom lens and autofocus.  I ain't good enough to use manual on a bouncy boat and rolling ocean.  Have a series of comin up and returning (7 shots I think) on another whale if anyone is interested.

I just called my little sister over here to look at this.  Just the other day we took a few moments to study humpback whales as part of her science lessons.  She said, "Cool!"

(Chelsea liked the flowers, too.)

Very nice.  Just got myself a Nikon D40 with a couple of lenses as my first jump into the DSLR arena.  That D200 is nice!

I have hard enough time coming up with right distance on the golf course!  Picture taken from severely rolling boat out towards ocean and my best guess is about 500 yards.  Photo was enlarged on computer, but shot was still clear enough to get close detail of even the eye of the whale.

Great pics

Trust me, I know PRECISELY how great these are.

I once went out on a whale watching boat in Hawaii with a decent camera w/telephoto lens etc and so forth, armed and desperate for the 'perfect pic'. 

But as luck would have it, the boat captain was one of those tree hugging greenpeace hippies who refused to get the boat too close to the whales "for their own safety"

still, the complementary mai tai's were breathtaking

Nice pics.  While we were in Hawaii the Mrs and I took a chartered boat that did snorkeling.  It was in early April so the whales were still around.  A couple got within 30-40 feet of our boat.  They were amazing.  I must have used an entire roll on them but didn't get any pictures near that good.

Good to know that we're not going to be getting a visit from a huge alien probe just yet.
