    Claire this has to be one of the most beautiful images i have seen for a long time – pure grace and serenity – It is just so lovely to look at and makes you feel at peace.

    This really is stunning Claire…I have to agree with Deborah about it being pure grace and serenity. Such an elegant animal to watch as they glide through the water and you have captured that so well here.. and such a clear shot with a beautiful glow. soem really interesting forms created by its muscles and I love the colour and glow.

    Very beautiful shot. These beautiful mammals are called the Canaries of the Sea because of their beautiful songs. You have a treasure of an image here. :-)
