Rainbows & Clouds + Yoga & Whales

At the beginning of August we had a full moon. I’m not sure of the exact day but this was the night before the complete full moon. The moon was bright and shining strong lighting up the mountains as a beautiful silhouette landscape.

It was a dreamy morning on Aug 2nd 2012. As the sun peeked through the clouds, a rainbow appeared and a beautiful sailboat came by. It was a quiet day on the water and this was a special moment.

On August 5th, I was lucky enough to witness 4 transient whales hunting dolls porpoise. They were splashing and porpoising straight out of the water! Transient dorsal fins have sharper points and more triangular look to them. I shot some video of the spectacular hunt that took place at the entrance to Blackney Pass, although the whales were mid-pass and pretty far, I could still make out the whales splashing and porpoising out of the water! About an hour or so after the hunt…the transients came passed CP (the hut) around sunset. I shot video of them as they passed by…
