On my first ever whale watching tour, near Sydney, I almost forgot I was there for the whales when these dolphins came to play! :-)

Of all the photographs from that unforgettable trip, this has to be one of my favourites and I hope that it will translate nicely to canvas for when I’m ready :-D

Off the coast of Australia, near Sydney NSW. October 2009.

Canon 400d 75-300mm lens.

I use no post-processing of any kind, unless stated.
