Canon ELPH 300 HS Photo #3 Distant Fin Whale, Disko Bay, Greenland

Didn't get any good photos of whales, though we saw fins and humpbacks. We were on a little speedy boat, and we'd stand on the top and shout "whales". The skipper would set us at twenty knots (which can be quite cold at -10C, in open sea), and we'd charge for the whales so that we could see them. The poor things would get a fright and disappear! These aren't conditions ideal for a good photo. We saw a fair few fin whales and a couple of humpbacks which messed about a bit before giving us "the tail" and disappearing.
