SOOC Sunday

I haven't been doing any photography this past week - Dan is scheduled for angioplasty and stents tomorrow morning (for a complete update, you can visit my other blog here at The Road Awaits).  These photos are from our Dolphin Tour off the coast of Virginia Beach last June.  These fellows were pretty hard to catch above the surface because we were in a moving boat, and they were having such a good time circling us!  By the time we would get to the side of the boat to see them, and I would get the camera positioned, they were back down and circling again!  Of the 115 shots I took, these were the best.

The brown pelicans were flying all around us most of the time we were in the boat - guess we were churning up lunch for them!

 As you can see, we were traveling very close to the shore - we have lived here many years and this was our first dolphin-watching trip.  I am glad we did it.

I am linking to SOOC SUnday.

Beautiful photos you have captured the magic of the dolphins.

This is something I would enjoy doing. My Husband is retired navy and he tells stories about all of his sightings during his years at sea. Dolphins are such amazing creatures.

I think you did a great job of capturing the dolphins. Don't you just love viewing these gorgeous animals? Thanks for sharing. Looks like a great trip.
