Try to have my camera with me on vacation, without making it a burden on anyone. Went on whale watching trip in Vancouver, got a good zoom on an Orca Whale,
I was much farther away than it seems from the photo. It has become one of my most downloaded photos, such as here:
January 2013 – FemGuide – Whale Watching Around Vancouver Island – link now (Sep 2015) dead
September, 2015 update – Saw my photo in an iStock photo ad on the web, couldn’t be more excited!
The original at iStock is here. In a month when I have been feeling not as good about my photography this is a huge confidence boost! :)
September 2015 – Found it also in the TheVancouverGuide.com’s whale watching page . Wow that Vancouver tourism people would select it also, hey I’m flattered…
