Various boats in Monterey Bay, CA

  1. We took a whale watching tour last week (just in between the rainy storms), in the Monterey Bay. The light was just right and the boats varied.

    These count as boat, don't they? :smile:

    Hi Phillipe,nice shots. Glad you made it to S.F for your vacation.
  5. Thanks for your comments Gale, John and Pete.

    Pete, you must have me confused with Dave (dbirdsong): I actually live in the Bay Area... and I still ought to get out to Monterey more. :smile:
  6. Phillipe, you are in one of my favorite places. Love the 17 mile drive and its environs. Have fun. Good images by the way.
  7. Thanks Gordon, it is a nice area for sure. I should really go out this way more often...

    John, the first 3 were taken with the D2H and the 17-55DX, and the last 2 with the 70-200VR + 1.7TC.
  8. Nice boats if I had my druthers woudl take the last one with a nice waterproof pelican case
  9. Monterey Bay is such a wonderful place to visit. I'll bet you had fun.

    I like them all, but the 4th one is great because it's so startling, makes you feel like you're right there, and the 5th one just because it's so peaceful.
