Can You Guess What It Is Yet?
I had the pleasure of doing the overnight cruise in Doubtful Sound; a fjord in New Zealand. Morning broke to find me out on deck in my pyjamas and thermals trying to capture the sunrise on camera because I’d read somewhere that the difference between a good photographer and a great photographer depended on the time you get up and out there – and I felt inspired.
I’ve never seen a dawning like it. And as if that wasn’t enough, the dolphins came out to play: weaving complex patterns around and beneath the boat.
The b!ggers sure swim fast! I must have used a roll and a half trying to get a good shot of them – and I had a digital camera so I could at least see whether the shot was any good or not.
What I came away with was 50 odd photos containing the tip of a fin here; the splash left after the b!ggers dived under just as I pressed the button (They just seemed to sense these times); and lots of photos containing what was clearly identifiable as slightly rippled, but obviously empty sea water.
This is my favourite shot of the collection: something about the blurry, not-quite-there quality of the image seems to capture the breathless amazement and excitement of the experience perfectly.
