"The Darkest Days" ∞ Merimbula, NSW - Australia by 

Dawn from Merimbula in NSW, Australia. Shortly after the sun arose on this morning we could see several whales breaching not 200 metres off shore – what an epic start to the day it was. :)

Shot on Velvia 50 with a Mamiya RB67, 50mm C lens, B+W polariser and Lee filters.
