Dolphins are a common sight, I'm told, but I never seen much more than a distant vaguely triangular-shaped splodge in the distance, that could be identified as a dolphin if you were kind. Until last Sunday.
Last weekend I had the pleasure of being down in Byron Bay for a dear friend's birthday, and on Sunday my husband and I headed to the Byron Bay lighthouse for the views, and to stand on the eastern-most point of mainland Australia. But the dolphins blew all of that away. I was pretty excited when we saw this small pod of three cruising up the coast. We saw a few more small pods, and a beautiful kestrel hunting from the cliffs. And then... well see below.
Good advice in photography is to present your one best image of any given shoot. That image will shine and make much better impression than several similar shots lumped together (and if you can't decide on just one, tough! Have an honest friend or family member help choose... my husband gets this task a lot). But today I'm going to ignore this advice as, hey, you can't really have too many photos of dolphins surfing, can you?
