Somewhere Out There

Square Perspectives Photo Challenge ~ Australian Landscapes #5

Destination: Shoal Bay, New South Wales

Whale watching is a risky business. There’s never a guarantee you’ll see any, and in Australia there are maritime regulations protecting marine animals. Boats are not permitted to approach whales, so you have to wait for the whales to come to you.

At first you spend a lot of time scanning the ocean, looking for signs of life. Every whitecap catches your eye.

Suddenly there’s a telltale spray and you know there’s a whale beneath the surface.

There might just be one,

but often a pod passes by, usually a female with a couple of male escorts.

Sometimes it feels like the whales are putting on a show just for you.

You and all the other excited whale watchers!



While our travel plans are on hold I’m joining in every day with Becky’s July Square Perspectives Photo Challenge over at The Life of B. The rules are simple: photos must be square and fit the theme of perspective. My posts represent the definition of perspective as a vista – seeing something over distance or time.

  1. Hello.

    Your whale photos are gorgeous. I have never seen them live, although I could have possibility to watch them in the Azores. The price was too high for us. Thank you.

    Happy new week!
