With a last wave of the tail, this is the end of the Sitka whale photos…for now…

Day 303

Beyond the whales you can see several boats fishing for salmon.  These salmon are called something specific in the store, because they are caught individually with a hook and line, instead of being caught in a purse/seine net.  They bring a premium price, but are individually picked from what is caught, with the others being released.  I can’t recall the term, however.  Oh well, I don’t eat salmon anyway!

I converted this one to black and white, mainly to help make the blow show better.

Day 300

This is actually a color photograph.  It was just a flat light kind of a day.

Day1430001

The only thing I have done to most of these was resize them to 60% and then cropped them to 1440×960.
