This week I decided to post my whale nursery images
captured at Warrnambool’s
Southern Right Whale Nursery
at Logans Beach.
It was only 2-3 years ago that I first visited
Warrnambool’s Logans Beach.
A 200 kilometres (one way) drive.
At first, I was a little sceptical that whales would be on display.
Particularly after the drone pilot told me
they were nearly a kilometre out to sea.
Soon after a cow and calf were sighted…
around half a kilometre away…
…heading towards the viewing platform.
I held my breath in the hope that they…
…would be within a decent range.
While I was using a 50-500 mm Sigma Zoom lens…
…with some cropping…
…I was more than pleased with the results
from my first whale watching images
This image was taken using the 50mm end of my zoom
simply to show how close to the sand the whales came.
I am sure better images were available to
those with only a 50 mm lens.
