young is not a word i would use or for that matter anyone would use to describe me...should have read the instructions properly, didn't realise we have the whole year for entries...


It must be good to know that you sound young though. And don't worry about the rules, we make the rules. All you need to do is keep entering and at the end of the year remove all but your best 3. Although, you've gotta be happy with your entries already. Especially that first one is a cracker.

Indeed it did exist as a screensaver on my desktop for months. Now replaced with this one:

I thought about entering this one, but I figured a blurred fraction of my rod holder didn't really qualify of a photo of the AI

Now that is life changing. Again that 1st shot would go straight to the pool room. I can't wait until the next whale migration. So was this an unprepared encounter Josh or did you manouver yourself into position and hope for the best ? And was there any fear or did you feel at ease ?

Actually it showed up as I was paddling along, so I just stopped, pulled out the camera and watched. It popped up beside me after last sighting it about 10 metres away, and it scared the jeebies out of me. Caught the event on vid to - enjoy (watch to the end to see the sequence of stills I got):



I'm looking forward to the next migration run, but trust me, I won;t be getting quite this close again if I can help it :-)

P.S. Spoke to Louis the other day. It was him, small world, we work for the same company. We are going to organise something out from Newcastle soon.

Yep, I sure do... but not just for the safety aspect. Also to prevent from being sharked, which almost happened yesterday. Had 3 shark sightings yesterday, all close to the kayak. Shield went on after the 3rd and I almost lost a fish :-)

Suggested by Chris that I submit this pic of Det cruising the ocean swell off Lion Island, Broken Bay NSW Australia.
Waves never look big in a photograph unfortunately

Now that is a top shot mate, and a certain contender. I know what you mean with the waves in trying to capture how big they are.
