Baja California #20 - Cruising for Composition

Discussion in 'Miscellany' started by bobhoge, Apr 19, 2007.

  1. In one of the early threads about this trip, I mentioned that one of the benefits of a Lindblad Photo Expedition over their regular trips was that they sometimes went "Cruising for Composition". I did not explain what that meant, but now i will. The Photo Expedition Leader will work with the Captain of the ship to position the ship in a spot where the background makes for interesting photos. Then we do the rest...:cool: 

    On the last evening we had a spectacular sunset:

    The ship crept along very slowly until we found just what we needed (a whale spout) in the foreground:

    Later that evening we got this view:

    And they found this Sperm Whale to add to the image, (a lot easier than using Photoshop :biggrin: ):

    It even dove right on cue to make a dramatic exit:

    Sometimes we went by zodiac for other compositions:

    you got a whale tail that close with a sunset? I'd die for that in Hawaii.

    What an amazing trip this must have been. The first few sunsets are absolutely breathtaking.
