Canada: Whale-watching off Gaspésie
Quite a few years ago my parents went whale-watching off the coast of the Gaspé in Quebec.
The day was cold and crisp. Percé Rock lived up to its name.
1) Percé Rock
With patience and lots of film to burn, they got lucky in the Gulf of St. Lawrence.
2) Approaching a humpback
Then they got even luckier. This is a hard shot to capture with a manual SLR camera.
3) Humpback breeching
